Undocumented in STEM

Summer Research and Professional Development Programs for Undocumented Students in STEM fields
Although undocumented students are not eligible to apply for NSF REUs and other programs with federal funding, there are a variety of programs funded by non-federal sources where eligibility does not depend upon American citizenship. All of these programs run during a 6-10 week summer session and provide a stipend (typically $4000-$7000) and lodging. Note that eligibility requirements are not always clear on web sites; some of these programs have been added to the list based on conversations with program directors. Students with questions should contact program directors directly. This list was crowd-sourced from twitter.
