Summer Research Opportunities

Stipend: sti•pend |sti pend| (noun) a fixed regular sum paid as a salary or allowance.
i.e. Most REU programs PAY YOU to go. Many also provide free housing, and some even provide free food and travel. All this and you get to do research at some of the leading universities. Pretty sweet deal.
