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. REU projects involve students in meaningful ways in ongoing research programs or in research projects specifically designed for the REU program.

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.By using the web page, Search for an REU Site, you may examine opportunities in the subject areas supported by various NSF units. Also, you may search by keywords to identify sites in particular research areas or with certain features, such as a particular location.Students must contact the individual sites for information and application materials. NSF does not have application materials and does not select student participants. A contact person and contact information is listed for each site.

What do Global Impact Fellows do?  Global Impact Fellows support and learn from the partner clinics’ talented medical professionals. Through hands-on, structured training, Global Impact Fellows gain a comprehensive understanding about best practices in global health and social entrepreneurship, and they receive a Certificate in Global Health & Program Delivery.  

Global Impact Fellows come from very diverse backgrounds, including those interested in public health, medicine, international development, social entrepreneurship, and the social sciences.  Global Impact Fellows work with local doctors to eliminate patient barriers to care for patients living in extreme poverty.  They assist with patient education, visual acuity screening, patient intake, distributing the glasses and medication prescribed by the local eye doctors, and other important support tasks.  They also have the opportunity to observe the surgeries provided by the local doctors. Additionally, Global Impact Fellows may participate in the Global Impact Lab, an optional program for those interested in pursuing global health research. For example, current Global Impact Fellows are pursuing research studies about medication management, the use of visual resources for patient education, traditional medicine practices, and patient barriers to care.

What do Global Impact Fellows say? “I gained a vast basin of knowledge not only about eye health, but also on the healthcare infrastructure, patient interactions, and management systems of the developing world. Reading about health issues in the news or in class became stark reality during my summer in Dhenkanal, and I now aim to reinvigorate my efforts to study and contribute to the field of international health. Over the course of my career, I hope that I can one day return to India as a doctor and remedy the health inequalities that remain ever-present on a global scale,” Pallavi Basu, Global Impact Fellow.  See more volunteer accounts at

STEER Program – Deadline Ongoing

April 13, 2012

Spend a month at the US-Mexico Border.  What you learn at STEER will last a lifetime!  Enjoy an international experience without leaving home.

Tuition free for students in US-accredited schools of medicine and public health.  Housing provided for only $750/month.  Most students’ schools give credit for STEER.  Some programs offer global health credit for STEER elective.  Presenters are bilingual.  Spanish not necessary.

Scholarships available on a first come, first served basis!

At present, the STEER students do not cross into Mexico.  Nevertheless, the Border provides a unique bicultural (90% Hispanic), bilingual learning environment, with a focus on the concerns of our nation’s border with Mexico – poverty, water and air pollution, immigration, sanitation, imports, the border “fence” and a medically underserved population threatened by infectious diseases such as dengue, tuberculosis, rabies as well as high rates of obesity and diabetes.

More than 25 presenters – all experts in their own right – will answer your questions:  What are the biggest challenges border residents face?  How are the medical and public health systems of both nations working to address these concerns?  How do health concerns at the US-Mexico Border affect every US citizen?

STEER offers training in two locations along the U.S.-Mexico Border─Laredo and Harlingen, Texas.
