Students must be US citizens or permanent residents. Applicants are sought who are majoring in a natural science, computer science or mathematics and who are interested in attending graduate school in the sciences. Preference is given to students who come from undergraduate institutions without research opportunities.


The Wadsworth Center participates in the National Science Foundation's Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. Students work on independent research projects in the laboratories of Wadsworth scientists. Students engage in research in a wide range of biological disciplines. A stipend of $3400 will be provided with housing.
