The 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.

Our Students in REUs:

  • Keith Hayes – Washington University in St. Louis
  • Dax Craig – University of Pennsylvania
  • Jordin Marshall – Ohio State University
  • Gelena Jones – Tulane University
