Santa Fe Institute Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The Santa Fe Institute (SFI) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program is a 10-week summer internship in which students develop innovative research projects in collaboration with an SFI mentor.

The program asks students to discard traditional disciplinary boundaries, and combine concepts and tools from the physical, natural, and social sciences. This allows students to ask big questions about real-world complex systems using the rigorous methods employed at the Santa Fe Institute.

Applications will be accepted from October 10, 2017 through January 4, 2018.
