Subject: 2. Where Can I Find an Intenship in Academia? 2.1 NSF REU Program The United States National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program provides support for undergraduate students in science and engineering research projects in an academic setting. REU grants come in two types: 1) REU Sites and 2) REU Supplements. REU sites are typically organized around a common theme and are often offered during summer months. Recruitment of students from outside the host institution is encouraged. REU Supplements are associated with individual NSF awards and are typically limited to one or two undergraduate students.
