Programs Physics REU

Hi everyone. So, I've recently been checking out some REU programs in the US that I would like to apply for next year. I've noticed that some sources state that applications are open to all US citizens, while others say that applicants are required to be "US students". As a US citizen studying abroad (I major in Engineering Physics at a Mexican University), would I be an eligible candidate for REU programs in the US? And even if I were, would this hurt my chances of admission? Thanks!

Eligibility varies by program. Jedishrfu's link describes the minimum set of rules for programs that are entirely NSF-funded, which is most but not all of them. Some have more restrictive rules than others. You need to look at each individual program to determine if you are eligible.
