NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates

NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Search by keywords to identify sites in particular research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location.

East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes

The East Asia and Pacific Summer Institutes (EAPSI) provide U.S. graduate students in science and engineering:  1.) first-hand research experiences in Australia, China, Japan, South Korea, New Zealand, Singapore or Taiwan; 2.) an introduction to the science, science policy, and scientific infrastructure of the respective location; and 3.) an orientation to the society, culture, and language. The primary goals of EAPSI are to introduce students to East Asia and Pacific science and engineering in the context of a research setting, and to help students initiate scientific relationships that will better enable future collaboration with foreign counterparts.
