Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) is an excellent way for students to gain practical experience in their major or discipline.
Why participate in an REU program?
Not only do REU programs offer students practical experience in their discipline, but they are also a great way to network with other students and professionals in their field. This experience allows students to strengthen their field skills or perhaps learn a new discipline they otherwise would not have explored. Additionally, many REU programs may offer stipends, paid on-site housing, travel and food allowances, and a materials budget.
