These programs offer students the chance to complete research in a range of STEM fields at campuses across the US over the summer.

The NSF funds REUs across the U.S. Students apply to each program individually. This link is to the list of options, updated annually by NSF.

Most opportunities are in the STEM fields, but there are a handful of Social Science programs available.
