Additional student resources
Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)
REUs are summer research programs for undergraduate students under supervision of a faculty mentor. Having REU experience is helpful both in graduate school and in internship/industry job applications.
Most projects last 8-12 weeks. Participants are usually offered travel reimbursement, housing or a housing stipend (some also offer a food stipend), and a salary. Many REU’s are posted on NSF website and we’re also sending announcements to cs students mailing list.
