Summer Research Opportunities

Each year, at campuses across the countrym and around the world, the National Science Foundation (NSF) sponsors Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs to encourage undergraduate participation in research. 

An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. 

Here, at UNC Charlotte, CCI hosts an REU program each summer. For information, CLICK.
