More than 2500 graduate students will participate directly in science, mathematics, and engineering research during 1987–1988 in a program sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF). Recently, 128 grants were awarded to small and large colleges and universities, national research facilities, and a major corporation in the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program. REU was initiated by NSF with the purpose of fostering the development of future scientists, mathematicians, and engineers by providing opportunities for active involvement in research for undergraduate students. Most of the grants will go to college and university faculty members for the development of research sites a round the country, each typically involving around eight students in research and the use of advanced instrumentation. The average amount of these grants is $42,000.
