Maryland Center for Undergraduate Research – National Science Foundation Summer Research Opportunities
Learn about the National Science Foundation Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program!!!
The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of paid summer research opportunities for undergraduate students through its “Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)” program. The 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 NSF-funded research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. Summer research opportunities are available in these fields:
Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences
Computer and Information Science and Engineering
Department of Defense (DoD)
Education and Human Resources
Ethics and Values Studies
International Science and Engineering
Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences
Please note: Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.
There are hundreds of NSF REU program sites across the nation and beyond. An REU program sit consists of a groups of around 10 undergraduates who join NSF-funded research projects at universities and other research facilities, gaining valuable research experience. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
You can view available NSF REU program sites by searching in the NSF REU Database. Students must contact the individual REU project sites for information and application materials. Although application requirements vary widely by project, many include a minimum GPA requirement and previous research experience can be helpful.

This book explores how international bureaucracies - secretariats - matter in global environmental governance. Largely ignored by scholars of international relations, the book explains how secretariats influence politics, and the conditions under which such influence is likely to occur. It argues that, although secretariats may not have the coercive power to dictate their will against state preferences, they influence political outcomes in ways that reflect constitutive forms of power. The book illustrates how secretariats can shape power relations between states by: designing governance architectures and institutions (institutional power); restructuring relationships between states by redistributing capabilities between them (structural power); and shaping state preferences by constructing shared norms and ideas (productive power). By shaping power relations between states in these ways, the book shows how secretariats themselves become powerful actors in international affairs.
