We want to hear about it!
An REU provides undergraduate students with opportunities to gain research skills by working on a research project under the guidance of a mentor.
Some provide pay (stipend), housing, and travel.
Many REUs are held in the summer semester with applications opening in early fall.

A post-baccalaureate (post-bacc) program provides recent college graduates with support to further explore their field and interests while gaining valuable skills.
These programs are completed after graduation but prior to graduate school enrollment and include training, enrichment activities, and preparation to aid students in their transition to professional or graduate programs.
Many are typically one-year programs with some being paid experiences.
Explore Post-Bacc opportunities
A fellowship is a competitive award that provides short-term funding while graduate students, under the guidance of a mentor, gain exposure and experience to further their academic interests.
Explore Fellowship opportunities!
A post-doc is a short-term position for recent doctoral graduates that provides continued training under a mentor.
This is when many determine their specialization.
