Undergraduate Fellowships

Every summer AMNH hosts two National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduate Site grants: Research in Evolution and Systematics, and Earth Sciences and Astrophysics. In these programs, undergraduate students who have completed their freshman through junior years may work with AMNH scientists on one of an array of potential research projects that are available each year.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates Program

The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the National Science Foundation, offers paid summer internships for qualified undergraduate students to conduct research projects with AMNH scientists either in evolutionary biologyphysical sciences, or linked to specific individual research projects. Included in the program are a general orientation to the Museum and a series of weekly meetings at which students discuss their research, present informal progress reports, and participate in discussions and seminars regarding systematics and phylogeny as well as graduate and research career opportunities. At the conclusion of the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research papers.
