Summer Research Programs

In line with our university’s response to the COVID-19 international outbreak, WSU did not host students in person on the Pullman campus for summer 2020 research programs. However, two of our programs shifted to a virtual format: Larry Holder and Hassan Ghasemzadeh’s REUs in the School of Electrical Engineering & Computer Science.
If your plans for summer 2021 include research, please do consider WSU as your top choice for an outstanding experience.

There are projects at the main campus in Pullman as well as at urban campus locations throughout the Pacific Northwest. You will:

  • Conduct research in cutting-edge facilities
  • Be mentored by award-winning professors
  • Receive a generous stipend that covers many expenses
  • Showcase your work to the public at an end-of-program poster symposium
  • Expand your personal and professional network

How Do I Join the Program?

You must apply directly to the specific program that interests you. Summer research programs are listed below.
