Undocumented in STEM

Summer Research and Professional Development Programs for Undocumented College Students in the USA in STEM Fields

Although undocumented students are not eligible for support through NSF REUs and many other programs funded directly by the federal government of the U.S.A., there are a variety of programs funded by non-federal sources where eligibility does not depend upon American citizenship. All of these research programs run during a 8-10 week summer session and typically provide a stipend (often $3000-$7000), lodging, meals, and/or travel expenses. Note that eligibility requirements are not always clear on web sites; some of these programs have been added to the list based on conversations with program directors.
