The NSF (National Science Foundation) offers an extensive list of Summer REUs (Research Experiences for Undergraduates) funded at institutions around the U.S. Students applying to NSF REUs must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. These programs are highly competitive (abt. 8 students per program), so we encourage you to apply to all that interest you.

Special Note for Students Needing Signed Agreements to participate in external research, internship, and other immersive opportunities (both domestic and international)
We understand the value of student internships, externships, practicums, and other outside the classroom learning experiences with host institutions. However, JHU is limited in its ability to enter in an agreement with a host institution. JHU may enter into an agreement with a host institution for a student learning experience when:
  1. The agreement, or a letter, is solely to verify that the student is enrolled at JHU in an academic degree program; or
  2. When the student internship or externship is part of an academic curriculum requirement counting toward a degree in one of the JHU schools (in this scenario there must be a JHU faculty advisor and an educational plan and goals consistent with the degree curriculum for the student to complete during the internship or externship).
*NOTE: the process to get the opportunity approved and all documents signed and returned may take 2 weeks or longer. Please plan accordingly.
