What is O-REU?

O-REU adapts elements of a traditional REU program into a fully online format with no residence requirement. It started within the Department of Material Sciences and Engineering and expanded to the College of Engineering.  Like traditional REUs, Texas A&M’s O-REU program is designed to give undergraduates real-world, working experience in scientific research.

This year, the O-REU program received over 200 applications from a diverse set of students from around the country. The 58 students who were selected for the program will each receive a stipend of $5000 for their work over the summer.

In addition to research experience under the guidance of a mentor, O-REU students will participate in numerous enrichment activities, such as online lectures, professional development seminars in technical communication, and workshops on preparing graduate school applications.
