NSF REU Site: Research Institute in Sociology and Social Inequality – Applications

NOTE: After much consideration, the REU program will be held virtually for Summer 2021 (May 31st to July 23rd). Students will meet synchronously as a group at least once per week during that time.

The Texas A&M Sociology Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) offers summer fellowships to do world class research.

This program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) under grant #1757813.

2021 Cohort Application

Two female students in the program


NSF program guidelines stipulate that students must be US Citizens or permanent residents and be working toward a four-year degree (graduating December 2021 or later). In addition, our program requires that students have the support and endorsement of a home campus faculty mentor. Your home campus faculty mentor may be a tenured or untenured faculty member who is willing to support you after you return to your campus. Ideally, you should choose a mentor who has experience with research, publication, presentation, and applications to graduate school in the social sciences.
