There are many opportunities for undergraduates to get involved with research over the summer. Students may attend programs based at other universities throughout the country and the world.
The University of Texas at Austin also hosts a number of undergraduate research programs on campus each summer. These programs select academically talented and motivated students to participate in exciting research in a variety of disciplines. Programs may be open to UT and non-UT students. Please contact each program directly for more information about eligibility, application, and deadlines.
Many of these programs are funded by the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program. To find out more about the NSF REU and search for REU summer programs hosted by universities across the country, visit the REU program student information page.
