Now Accepting Applications for the Summer 2023 Program

Welcome!

The National Science Foundation (NSF) - Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Collaborative Site Program on Immigration Policy and US-Mexico Border Communities is designed to provide undergraduate students with training in research methods and opportunities to conduct collaborative projects with community partners on the nature and impacts of US immigration policy in the Paso del Norte borderlands region of Las Cruces-El Paso-Ciudad Juárez.

The program has been supported since September 2017 by the NSF-REU program under Award #1659195 (until August 2021). 30 undergraduate students from New Mexico State University (NMSU), the University of Texas-El Paso (UTEP), and from colleges and universities around the United States have participated in our 10-week summer programs. Our approach is rooted in the principles of Community-Based Participatory Research (CBPR) and we are fortunate to work with the committed staff and volunteers of community organizations in the Paso del Norte region.

We are happy to announce that the NSF has renewed its support for this program for the period 2022-25 under Award #2149449We are now accepting applications for the Summer 2023 program.

We are grateful to the NSF-REU program for its continued support.
