Research Experience for Undergraduates


The University of Arkansas has received funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to implement seven Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs. The programs are designed to give students hands-on research experience in the STEM fields. Each REU program accepts approximately 10 students every summer from universities all of the United States. The selected students are enrolled in a 1 hour research class and work with faculty members on research projects of their choice during their 10-week stay at the U of A.
