The Whitney Laboratory Research Experience for Undergraduate program (REU), funded by the National Science Foundation (Site Award 0648969), offers an exceptional opportunity for the motivated undergraduate to participate in scientific research. If you are serious about science but have never had the opportunity to perform work as a scientist, then this program is for you.
In cooperation with a faculty supervisor, students choose a project that fits both their interests and ongoing investigations of the Lab and that can be completed within the ten-week training period during the summer.
The Whitney Laboratory's REU program has been running for more than 30 years (since 1987).
2018 Summer Interns
Undergraduates who qualify for the REU Program receive a competitive stipend and assistance with travel expenses to the Whitney Lab. Interns stay in on-site housing, whose costs are covered by the program. Students must be a U.S. citizen or have permanent residency to qualify for NSF funding. Students from groups under-represented in the sciences (African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, and Pacific Islanders), first generation college students, women and non-traditional students are encouraged to apply.
It is possible to receive credit for the work completed during an REU. Students should make arrangements with their home institution.
