Application Information








Update 11/8/17: I'm working on having the 2018 application ready to go by Thanksgiving. Check back soon!

NSF funds many REUs. You can select one of the discliplinary areas (we're listed under Atmospheric Science) or search with keywords here: https://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/reu_search.jsp New programs typically learn about their funding over the wintertime, but don't necessarily solicit applications that spring. Existing programs generally receive their next year of funding one to two months after the Federal budget has been approved by Congress and signed by the President.


Here are some important details from the 2017 program. Summer of 2018 will be similar to this:

The 2017 program runs from May 22 - July 28.

You receive a stipend: $5,000 (these funds are considered a scholarship / fellowship)
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
We provide housing: in modern, furnished campus apartments, most likely Traditions Square. In that complex you have a private, locking bedroom in 4bed/2bath apartments.

What projects will be available?
Here are the 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 first week of March. We will follow NSF's new request to give students until March 15 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.



Please check the FAQ before writing or calling!
