Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

This program provides educational opportunities for Undergraduate Students. This program provides indirect funding for undergraduate students to participate in research. To inquire about possible funding opportunities, please contact the organizations that have received awards. (Do not contact NSF.) A directory of active REU Sites, along with contact information, can be found on the Web at

National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (NHMFL)

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)

Researchers at the MagLab are making discoveries today that will lead to the technologies of tomorrow. Whether a member of one of our robust in-house research groups or one of the nearly 1,400 outside scientists who do experiments here annually, MagLab researchers understand how high magnetic fields lead to making big discoveries.

The MagLab is home to dozens of magnets, many of them one-of-kind instruments or world-record holders as well as other types of tools that make our cutting-edge science possible.

The MagLab’s prestigious Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) is an exciting summer program for college students interested in a science career the chance to partner with a MagLab scientist on an in-depth research project.

The program offers a wide range of research experiences in physics, chemistry, biological sciences, geochemistry, materials science and magnet science and engineering. Participants work closely with faculty mentors and are thoroughly integrated into research and development activities. Students also participate in weekly seminars and colloquia that broaden their knowledge of Magnet Lab research.
