The program includes both individual research and group activities. Each student is assisted by a faculty adviser and some also by a graduate-student adviser. Group activities include seminars and other social and professional events. Students are encouraged to continue their research during the following academic year, under the direction of their summer mentor or another faculty member.
For math department research topics (once available) see the math projects page. For Dimacs research topics see the DIMACS projects page.
Our program is run jointly at Rutgers with the DIMACS/DIMATIA REU. See the joint homepage for important details.

Women, members of minorities, and students with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.
Participating undergraduates receive free on-campus housing and a stipend of $4,400 if they choose to live in a double room (or to choose not to use the free housing provided), $3,600 if they choose to live in a single room. We also pay certain travel expenses. Under NSF rules, only citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. are eligible to receive stipends; we do not accept other students even if they would be willing to waive stipend.
REU coordinators: Dr. Lazaros Gallos
