Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The ERCs have developed many innovative programs to leverage the strong aspects of ERC research and education not only into the engineering schools, but also out into the wider educational environment. An excellent example is the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which most ERCs offer. The purpose of the NSF-funded REU program is to involve talented undergraduates in active research projects, usually during the summer, working alongside ERC researchers and students. REU students may come from the ERC's host university or another institution.

A good example of the impact that an ERC REU experience can have on a student is the story of Native American Dr. Franklin Dollar.

The current REU solicitation is here.
