Here are some important details for applicants:

The 2017 program runs from May 22 - July 28.

You also receive some subsistence: $500 (to help with food costs in first month)
We reimburse your travel to/from Norman up to $600
We pay what we can and reimburse the rest for one trip to a National Conference Travel, up to $1,500

What projects will be available?
We have 11 or so projects identified as of 1/31 and this page will continue to be updated as new projects come in: 2017 Project Descriptions

Who is eligible to apply?
You must be enrolled in a 2 or 4-yr undergraduate degree program through the summer of 2017 (not taking classes, but not yet graduated) and be a US citizen or permanent resident. You are eligible if finishing a 2-yr degree and starting a 4-yr degree program. Applications from women and minorities are particularly encouraged. The University of Oklahoma is an equal opportunity institution.

NSF requests that REU sites select at least half of their participants from schools where research opportunities are limited, and that includes 2-year institutions.

When will I know if I am accepted?
We will attempt to make offers by the last week of February or first week of March. This year we will follow NSF's new request to give students until March 15, 2017, to accept or decline an offer to participate in our program. This means the second wave of offers may not occur until around March 15.
