NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location.
The page on Computer and Information Science and Engineering NSF REU sites has a list of programs for this upcoming summer. There are programs available nearby at Harvey Mudd, USC, UC Santa Cruz, UC Berkeley as well as just about every state such as New York, Texas, Massachusetts, Michigan, Utah, Virginia, etc.
In the sections below, you'll find a description of some of these.
