Summer Research Opportunities

The National Science Foundation offers summer undergraduate research opportunities in many locations across the US. These opportunities are fully funded, meaning that the selected students receive a stipend. Many programs also provide room and board, though a few require students to pay for room and board with their stipend. Many programs also assist students with the transportation costs of traveling to the location. The research opportunities are a great for students to gain both research and work experience and also to develop relationships with mentors and other undergraduates in their fields.

 

The NSF offers these opportunities in a wide variety of fields. All of the STEM fields are represented, as well as social/behavioral science ( psychology, sociology, economics, political science). Agricultural, animal science, and environmental science majors). If you don’t already have summer plans, this would be a great way to make some money, live in a different part of the US, do some cool research, and meet undergrads in your field.
