NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Programs 2021


The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of research experiences for undergraduate (REU) students through its REU Sites program. 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.

Old Dominion University (ODU) has robust REU programs for students wanting to explore Chemistry (Community College students), Cybersecurity, Engineering (Clean Fuels), Psychology (Transportation), and Physics (in collaboration with the Jefferson Laboratory). In the summer of 2021, these programs took place virtually. Research posters produced by the students are featured in this collection.
