The summer REU program offers research opportunities for domestic undergraduates from institutions outside of the ASSIST center. The program is open to any student who is majoring in a science or engineering-related field.

REU students will be immersed in a 10-week intensive research experience at one of ASSIST's partner institutions where they will be exposed to the various aspects of university research. Students will be partnered with a faculty mentor based on their interests, they will conduct a research project, and they will present their work at a student symposium at the end of the summer.

The program is open to U.S. Citizens and permanent residents only. Women, members of under-represented minority populations, and students from institutions that do not have strong STEM research programs are encouraged to apply.

Students will receive a $4,000 stipend , on-campus room and board, and up to $500 for travel reimbursement for those students coming from outside of a 50 mile radius of the host university.
