UF Physics Building

This REU Site is supported by the National Science Foundation Division of Materials Research, the Department of Defense Awards to Stimulate and Support Undergraduate Research Education (DoD ASSURE) program, and the University of Florida.

REU student in the lab REU participants will conduct research in the department and take part in group activities including seminars on cutting-edge areas of physics; workshops focusing on graduate programs, career opportunities in the physical sciences, and scientific communications skills; and field trips to laboratories on and off campus. You can get a better idea of these activities by browsing through the information on past programs.

REU picnic at Lake Wauburg

For the Summer 2011 program undergraduate participants received a $4,900 stipend, an allowance for travel to/from Gainesville, FL, and housing was be provided. Weekends during the program will be left open for participants to explore the abundant attractions of North and Central Florida.

REU student in the lab Eligibility: REU participants must be undergraduate students and must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.
We especially encourage applications from members of groups under-represented in science and engineering, and from students enrolled at institutions where research opportunities are limited.
