Undergraduate Summer Research

During the summer, research in the sciences does not stop at Brandeis University. Every summer we have 100-120 undergraduates on campus doing research, including students from Brandeis and from other institutions. Undergraduates talk about summer research at Brandeis.

Programs for external visitors include two NSF-funded Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) programs: an REU in Cell & Molecular Visualization based in the Biology Department, and and REU in Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC). This year, the REUs begin on May 26, 2015, continue for a 10-week period concluding on August , 2016. Each program includes housing costs, a meal allowance and a stipend. Other student arrive via the HHMI Exrop program and the Brandeis-India Science Scholars Program, as well as informal arrangements with individual faculty.

Funding support for Brandeis undergrads comes from a variety of programs highlighted by an NIH Computational Neuroscience training grant and our alumni-sponsored Division of Science Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships.

The capstone event for undergraduates is Summer SciFest, a poster session where students can present the results of their research to peers, grad students, and faculty. The next SciFest at Brandeis will be held on August 4, 2016.
