Off-campus research and funding opportunities

While we encourage undergraduate students to pursue research opportunities at UGA during their time here, we also know that there are many ways to expand your research experiences by participating in off-campus programs.

The following links and resources are meant to be used as a guide to start your search for opportunities. We do not endorse any particular program.

Research programs and internships

  1. National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates
    NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of 10 or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where they work closely with faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
  2. National Institutes of Health
