For each, the professor(s) must be willing to supervise a project over the summer.  Both pay over $300/week for the duration.  FITL projects are expected to be student-initiated; both require an application by the beginning of March so check the Career services link for details.

Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU).  The National Science Foundation funds a number of REU sites each summer, spread across the country, from liberal arts schools to large research institutions.  Those I get by mailing list I will post below.  The entire list of sites and the projects that are expected to be offered can be found at the NSF website (last I looked, this site still had old sites listed. Keep checking back).
