Reminder: REU Deadlines Are Approaching!
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by college students in any of the areas of study funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.
Students do not apply to NSF to participate in REU activities; instead, students apply directly to individual REU sites or to NSF-funded investigators who receive REU supplements. The majority of NSF-funded REU sites in astronomy have application deadlines in late January and early February. The NSF Division of Astronomical Sciences maintains a searchable listing of programs seeking applicants. Please note that only U.S. citizens or permanent residents are eligible to apply.
