Participants will spend 10 weeks with UConn faculty and graduate students, participating in graduate level research projects on physiological systems in animals ranging from invertebrates and marine fish to birds and mammals. REU students will be part of a campus multidisciplinary REU community consisting of several programs in the physical sciences and engineering as well as physiology and neurobiology. The research program will be accompanied by seminars and a social program. Each student prepares a scientific poster of their research for presentation at an on campus REU symposium. The program lasts for 10 weeks, from the end of May through early August. Students must be available for the entire 10 week period.

All students receive:

  • A stipend
  • A meal allowance
  • Housing (with other REU participants) in our modern, air-conditioned University dormitories. University recreational facilities will also be available for participant use.
  • Limited funds to assist with travel expenses to and from UConn are also available if requested at the time of application. UConn is located midway between New York City (2.5 hours) and Boston (2 hours) in scenic eastern Connecticut.
