Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program:

Summer 2019 Undergraduate Research Program
Undergraduate Research in Race, Ethnicity and the Demography of U.S. Families
The Population Research Center at the University of Texas is offering a Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) in 2019. Students will have the opportunity to work directly with faculty, policy analysts, and senior graduate students on issues related to race, ethnicity, and American families. Students will also participate in coursework, data analysis, training experiences in the ‘real’ world and the academy.
  • Opportunity to study social demography through course work and mentored research experience with PRC faculty and senior graduate students
  • Program pays for room and board, and computing and research-related expenses
  • REU students receive a $4,000 stipend for participation in the 8 week program
  • Students participate in a 3-hour summer course during the first 5 weeks of the program, taught by a team of cutting edge family demographers
  • Students collaborate with demographers working outside the academy, in state and local research institutes
  • Second half of the program focuses on individual projects in collaboration with graduate student mentors and PRC faculty
  • Student papers are presented in the fall at a professional conference or as policy briefs to local stakeholders
  • This program is specifically geared toward students with junior standing who are seriously thinking about attending graduate school in the social sciences and, particularly, in sociology or demography
  • Students from underrepresented groups are strongly encouraged to apply

The 2019 summer REU Program application deadline is March 4, 2019.
