UMBC keeps a web page on research opportunities for transfer students. Check out http://umbc.edu/undergrad_ed/fys/trsResearch.html. Most of the deadlines are around February 1 for summer 2015—so get going!

Here is another list of REUS which are not funded by NSF (private/other funding sources); this list is also created by UMBC. Look at http://umbc.edu/undergrad_ed/research/myMajorResearchOUE.html.

This is a link to an REU in Biology in New York City. This same site may also have some REUs in the physical sciences. Go to http://www.amnh.org/our-research/richard-gilder-graduate-school/academics-and-research/fellowship-and-grant-opportunities/undergraduate-fellowships/reu-biology-program.

2015 Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Computational Sensing and Medical Robotics at The Johns Hopkins University in the Computer Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology Engineering Research Center (CISST ERC) / Laboratory for Computational Sensing and Robotics (LCSR). The REU program is an intensive ten-week program of laboratory research and instruction. In the program, each REU student receives hands-on laboratory research experience under guidance from faculty and graduate student mentors. The students will also receive classes on ethics in research and technical communication. A stipend and housing will be provided by the program. The deadline to apply is March 2, 2015. http://lcsr.jhu.edu/reu/ If you have more questions, you can contact Anita Sampath at asampath@jhu.edu or 410-516-6841.

The Seattle University Mathematics Early Research (SUMmER) program is an opportunity for students with diverse backgrounds to work collaboratively on projects at the frontiers of current mathematical knowledge.  More information can be found at: http://www.seattleu.edu/scieng/math/reu/ Questions can be directed mathREU@seattleu.edu
