NSF REU internships

In general, check out the web-site of National Science Foundation (NSF) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU): there is a long list of different research opportunities, and keep in mind that STEM students are welcomed in many research areas (Chemistry, Biology, etc) so feel free to check them out.

NSF REU internship at Princeton University
      June 5 – August 4, 2017

Professor Jannette Carey from Princeton University came to BCC to introduce the NSF REU summer internships at Princeton University to STEM students.

The mission of our training program in molecular biophysics is to enable students of the physical, mathematical, and engineering sciences from colleges with limited research opportunities to address important problems in biology. The summer undergraduate program offers cross-disciplinary research experience in leading laboratories that apply the intellectual, experimental, or theoretical tools of those disciplines to biological questions.

The program is open to students who have completed one or two years of study in chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, or physics, and who are in good standing in their home institutions.
We do not encourage applications from students majoring in biology, nor students in their third undergraduate year or beyond.
Competitive applicants should have a good GPA, especially in the field of their major.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
The program does not accept students from Princeton University.

successful completion of a summer's reqsearch qualifies you to apply for a subsequebt summer overseas (work with colleagues in Europe)

Rockefeller University Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF)
      June 5 to August 11, 2017

the program provides a unique opportunity for undergraduates to conduct laboratory research. SURF students work with leading scientists in a broad range of areas including biochemistry; structural biology and chemistry; molecular, cell and developmental biology; immunology; virology and microbiology; neuroscience; physics; and mathematical biology. College sophomores and juniors are eligible to spend 10 weeks during the summer in a Rockefeller University laboratory. The program begins in early June and ends in mid-August. Placement in laboratories is centralized through the Dean's Office. Students are matched with laboratories according to their stated research interests, and work on projects under the direct supervision of faculty, postdoctoral fellows and/or senior graduate students.

SURF students receive a stipend of $5,000.00.
Free housing will be provided for students who cannot commute.
Campus facilities include a tennis court, a recently renovated gym and adjacent east west esplanade for jogging, running, walking, or roller blading.
SURF students are encouraged to attend social and cultural events occurring both on and off campus.
Organized outings for SURF students have included trips to see a Broadway show and professional baseball game.

The Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE)
      May 28, 2017 - August 4, 2017

The Vanderbilt Institute for Nanoscale Science and Engineering (VINSE) brings ten students each summer to campus to work closely with VINSE faculty on research projects in cutting edge areas of nanoscale science and engineering. This summer program is funded by the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (NSF-REU) program. Participation in the program provides students with a true interdisciplinary research experience in an environment where physicists, chemists, biologists, and all engineers collaboratively solve problems and create new scientific understanding. Weekly lunchtime meetings are held for all faculty and students that cover topics ranging from ethics and the responsible conduct of research to demystifying graduate school and the GRE examination. Each student works directly with VINSE faculty members and their research groups and has access to the VINSE laboratories, which are shared facilities available to all authorized users. Furthermore, the Vanderbilt campus is just one mile from downtown Nashville.

Students who are US Citizens or Permanent Residents majoring in science or engineering are eligible to apply to the REU program.
Students from underrepresented groups and institutions are strongly encouraged to apply.
Students are to be notified of their acceptance into the program by email by mid-March annually.
Selections are primarily based on academic standing and faculty recommendations.
