Summer REU programs are paid eight to ten week summer programs designed
to provide students with a research experience at an institution other
than their own. Summer REU programs serve as a recruiting tool for the
host university since REU programs are designed to simulate the graduate
school experience and prepare participants for graduate study. REU
participants work on an individual research project under the direction
of a faculty or staff member. If you are thinking about graduate school,
REU programs are an excellent opportunity for you to explore your research
interests and gain valuable research experience. National Science
Foundation sponsors a number of REU programs, some of which are listed
below. REU programs are very competitive, so you should pick several to
apply to, most have a similar application with no application fee. You
should also pick a wide variety of REU locations, since the most desirable
geographic locations (Santa Barbara and NYC) are usually the most
National Science Foundation REUs. Many opportunities at various institutions.

Internship Opportunities for Undergraduates
Many companies have formal internship programs for undergraduate
students. An internship is a directed, practical learning experience,
outside of the normal classroom setting, offered by an employer to
potential employees, interns, to work at a company for a fixed, limited
period of time. Internships provide an excellent opportunity for you to
sharpen skills, gain experience through real world work, apply classroom
learning to professional settings or projects, and learn first hand how
professional companies or organizations operate. Internships are a great
way to gain an edge when applying for a job, to build a network of
contacts in the industry, and some internships may even lead to jobs
within the company after graduation. A few internship opportunities are
listed below to help you start with your internship search, some of the
listed opportunities are connected to an Allegheny connection, either
through our alums working in these companies or through the direct
recruitment of our students by the companies.
