The Texas A&M College of Science has offered up to six different REU programs for at least two decades in a range of fields, including chemistry, mathematics, nuclear science, and physics and astronomy. Astronomy's is the youngest, beginning in 2014, while Chemistry's dates back to the late 1980s when the NSF first started the grant.

“We have a very unique facility that allows Texas A&M undergraduates an experience that very few students could have. The REU is our way of making that experience accessible to a wider array of students, some of whom end up coming here for graduate school. Some go elsewhere but take with them a very favorable attitude about Texas A&M.”
