The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. The NSF Division of Chemistry funds about 20-25 REU Sites a year (depending on the availability of funds) as part of the NSF-wide REU activity. Projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

The REU program features two mechanisms for support of student research:

  • REU Sites are based on independent proposals to initiate and conduct projects that engage a number of students in research. REU Sites may be based in a single discipline or academic department, or on interdisciplinary or multi-department research opportunities with a coherent intellectual theme. Proposals with an international dimension are welcome. A partnership with the Department of Defense supports REU Sites in DoD-relevant research areas.
  • REU Supplements may be requested for ongoing NSF-funded research projects or may be included as a component of proposals for new or renewal NSF grants or cooperative agreements.

Undergraduate student participants in either Sites or Supplements must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.

Students may not apply to NSF to participate in REU activities. Students apply directly to REU Sites and should consult the directory of active REU Sites on the Web. For more detailed information on the NSF-wide REU program, please see the REU program solicitation: NSF 07-569
