Current & Timely Research Opportunities

Very current research opportunities and those that have application deadlines coming in the near future are regularly posted to the UAH Student Research Facebook Page. Like our page for the latest updates!

Summer Research Opportunities

  • NSF REU Search

    The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program supports active research participation by undergraduate students in any of the areas of research funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF). REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program. Undergraduate student participants in either REU Sites or REU Supplements must be U.S. citizens, U.S. nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. Students do not apply to NSF to participate in REU activities; rather, they apply directly to REU Sites or to NSF-funded investigators who receive REU Supplements.

  • Pathways to Science – Summer Research Opportunities Database

    A variety of resources for students and educators looking for summer research opportunities in many academic fields of study.

  • American Mathematical Society – Listing of Summer Programs for Undergraduate Research

    A list of REU programs active during the summer season maintained by the American Mathematical Society. Applicants should note that most application deadlines fall in February or March.

Year-round Research Opportunities

  • NASA's One-Stop Shopping Initiative (OSSI) for NASA Interns, Fellows, and Scholars

    NASA internships are educational, hands-on traineeships that provide unique NASA-related research and operational experiences for high school, undergraduate, and graduate students as well as educators. These internships integrate participants with career professionals and emphasize mentor-directed, degree-related, real-world task completion.

  • NASA Student Programs

    These opportunities include summer programs and scholarships for undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral fellowships, and special programs for early career researchers, faculty members, and senior scientists. Some of these programs occur only at NASA centers, but others are designed to support students or scientists at universities.

Publication & Presentation Opportunities

  • National Student Conference on Undergraduate Research

    The mission of the National Conference on Undergraduate Research (NCUR) is to promote undergraduate research scholarship and creative activity done in partnership with faculty or other mentors as a vital component of higher education. Search "NCUR" on the main CUR website for latest details.

  • Posters on the Hill

    In the spring of every year, the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) hosts its annual undergraduate poster session on Capitol Hill. There is an evening poster session and reception where students have the opportunity to speak directly to members of Congress and demonstrate how they have been impacted by these programs. The Call for Abstracts opens in September and closes in November. Search "CUR Posters on the Hill" on the main CUR website for the latest information.


  • WebGuru

    The Web Guide to Research for Undergraduates (WebGURU) is an interactive web-based tool intended to assist undergraduates in navigating the hurdles of an undergraduate research experience.

  • The Council on Undergraduate Research Registry of Undergraduate Researchers is one tool that undergraduate students can use to assist them in their pursuit of a graduate degree. Its purpose is to facilitate matchmaking between undergraduates with research experience and a desire to pursue an advanced degree and graduate schools seeking high-quality students who are well-prepared for research. Currently the registry is open to students and graduate schools/employers in nearly all fields.
