Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) - From Estuaries to the Deep Sea


Each summer, OSU offers paid research internships for 20-24 undergraduate students, funded by the National Science Foundation. 10-12 students are located at the Hatfield Marine Science Center (HMSC) on the Pacific coast in Newport focusing on marine and estuarine science, while another 10-12 spend their time at the College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences (CEOAS) in Corvallis, focusing on topics such as ocean ecology and biogeochemistry, marine geology and geophysics. As a participant in either site, you will spend ten weeks working on individual research projects and participating in group field trips, seminars, and science colloquia under the guidance of the University and research agency scientists. We welcome applications from currently enrolled undergraduates (with the exception of graduating seniors) with backgrounds in any STEM field. Eligibility is limited to U.S. citizens and permanent residents, but students from underrepresented groups, community colleges, and institutions with limited research abilities are especially encouraged to apply. If accepted, you will receive a weekly stipend of $612, on-site housing and round-trip transportation from your home area if needed. The 2020 summer program will run from June 15 – August 22.
