Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The Institute for Broadening Participation (IBP) and COSEE-OS developed this webinar series with the goal of sharing the basics of how undergraduates can seek and apply for summer research experiences. Presenters from IBP guide participants through a concept map highlighting a variety of information and tips that can help students to get started on or enhance their applications. Veterans of paid summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) and NASA summer internships provide first-hand insights into their recent research opportunities. 

The interactive concept map presented in each webinar includes resources that are available to participants – specifically collected in the concept map for easy access. To view this map full size, click on the wrench icon in the upper left hand corner, and select, "Open Full Map Viewer."
