Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Programs

  • Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh have an exciting opportunity summer research experience for undergradates (REU) available for undergraduates.

    This REU program is sponsored by LearnLab, a Science of Learning Center funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). We encourage applications from students who would like to conduct research in the fields of psychology, education, computer science, human-computer interfaces and language technologies. LearnLab's REU program allows talented undergraduates to spend 8 weeks during the summer in a research laboratory at Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh, or one of our research partners.

  • Winthrop University will be hosting a Research Experience for Undergraduates program: Bridging Applied and Theoretical Mathematics from May 28th through July 25th. The 2014 summer’s research themes are Interactions between differential equations and cancer biology and Interactions between algebraic geometry, combinatorics and phylogenetics.

    We welcome applications from all hard working mathematics students, and especially those from groups traditionally underrepresented in mathematics graduate programs. This program is designed for students from primarily undergraduate institutions, and other who may have limited access to research experiences.

  • The Boise State Department of Biological Sciences has launched a new NSF-sponsored REU Site focused on raptor research. The summer program culminates in a summer research conference with poster presentations by all involved. Dr. Belthoff would be very pleased to hear from any interested TRiO participants.
