REU in STEM Education at North Dakota State University


Dear colleagues,

Please encourage your undergraduate students to apply for this program.


Do you have an outstanding undergraduate student interested in learning and teaching in STEM? Do you have a student who has gone above and beyond on inside or outside the classroom? Perhaps a student showing an abundance of creativity and drive? These students possess the skills we are looking for in our summer research program. Please encourage them to apply for our REU program, Growing Up STEM.

We are excited to announce the 8th year of our summer REU in discipline-based education at North Dakota State University. Our program is an excellent opportunity for students interested in learning and teaching of STEM at the undergraduate level. Students work in a cohort of undergraduate scholars over a 10-week period during the summer and are immersed in hands-on research experiences in discipline-based education research. Students are housed on-campus and earn a $5000 stipend.

Students may have the opportunity to present their research at a national conference with travel support from our REU. Additional travel funding is available for travel to and from Fargo for those in financial need.

Our program begins May 26, 2020 and runs through August 1, 2020. Applications due February 1, 2020.
