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. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. Applications are due in the spring time for summer positions. Many of the awards include stipends, travel costs, and/or room and board.
The University of Vermont has two NSF-REU sites through the Department of Physics and through the Summer Neuroscience Research Fellowship (SNURF). You can find them by going to the NSF-REU website and searching for "Vermont" -we've got the only programs in the state!
