The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) is a ten week summer program, during which students work on faculty-mentored research projects. Participants receive a weekly stipend, complimentary on-campus apartment style housing, and a travel allowance.
Students participate in hands-on, interdisciplinary research opportunities with leading professors and faculties in biology, chemistry, and physics. Working closely with and mentored by faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral research fellows will allow you to understand and fully experience the breadth of scientific research.
Don't waste a minute and get started on your application. Be apart of the latest, groundbreaking research in biology, chemistry, and physics. Start your online application via our website. We are currently accepting applications for the Summer 2014 cycle.
$5,000 Stipend, free on-campus housing provided as needed and partial travel reimbursement up to a minimum of $300! It's just another reason why you should apply for BU REU this year.
Students will be introduced to research opportunities early in their academic careers. The goal is to motivate, engage, and expose them to experiences relating to the chemical sciences.
We have state of the art equipment and spectroscopic instrumentation available for research in chemistry, biology, and physics. They are all at your disposal and for your innovative and groundbreaking research in the chemical sciences.
You're never alone. You will be interacting face-to-face with renowned professors and faculty in their respective fields. Not only will the program provide you with a solid practical foundation in research, but you will encounter new mentors and form new friendships along the way.
