Off-Campus Summer Research

There are a wide range of summer research opportunities that accept undergraduate students in many fields. Some of these programs are REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) supported by the National Science Foundation. Additional opportunities may be added here as they are announced. These programs are not administered by UST and students must apply individually to be considered.
