  • Description:

    Would you like to spend a fun and engaging summer in the heart of New York City working at the American Museum of Natural History?

    The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, offers paid summer internships for qualified undergraduate students to conduct research projects with AMNH scientists in evolutionary biology, linked to specific individual research projects. Included in the program are a general orientation to the Museum and a series of weekly meetings at which students discuss their research, present informal progress reports, and participate in discussions and seminars as well as graduate and research career opportunities. At the conclusion of the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research papers.

    The program is open to all students who are U. S. citizens or permanent residents and who are currently enrolled in a four-year undergraduate degree program.

    Pending the approval of federal funding, successful applicants will receive a stipend, while dormitory housing on a nearby university campus, or an equivalent housing stipend, will be provided together with a subsistence allowance. Based on need, travel costs to and from New York City are also covered.
