Real-World Research Experiences for Undergraduates
at the National Weather Center







The National Weather Center (NWC) in Norman, Oklahoma invites motivated undergraduate students from any major who are interested in a career in research to apply for a 10-week summer research program. The Research Experiences for Undergraduates at the Oklahoma Weather Center is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation to the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms.

Students participate in a 10-week research program during the summer under the supervision of mentors from the National Weather Center partner organizations (follow this link), as well as related organizations on the University Research Campus. Mentors commonly come from:

In short, this REU is shared by all of the weather and climate-related groups in Norman.

Participants conduct research on such topics as: severe weather, tornadoes, societal impacts of weather, numerical weather prediction models, atmospheric radiation, climatological studies, dryline studies, and more. They also prepare and present papers reporting the results of their research, with lots of help and coaching from us on how to do this.

We also build research skills through workshops, take tours, go on field trips, and hear seminars on all kinds of topics in order to have as well-rounded an experience as possible. Our goal is to help participants decide whether a career in research is for them.

We provide:

  • furnished housing in modern campus apartments,
  • a travel allowance to get and from to Norman, Oklahoma,
  • a travel allowance to attend a professional conference,
  • and a fellowship stipend (we pay you to be here).
