We have multiple NSF-supported paid REU opportunities for Spring 2018 and Summer 2018. Stipends will be $4,000 for the Spring 2018 semester and $8,000 for 10-week positions during Summer 2018. Summer stipends are intended to be sufficient to provide for travel to and from Virginia Tech as well as housing, food, and other living expenses and will be paid every two weeks according to the Virginia Tech payroll schedule.
As part of these positions, students will perform research in one or more of the following areas:
A proposal for a new summer REU site is pending review by NSF. If NSF decides to support the site, we will be hosting 10 students this summer. Research topics will be related to use of emerging wireless and related technologies to enable effective and efficient health care and other services in cities, towns, and rural areas and will include entrepreneurial as well as technical aspects.
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. Read more
