The Summer 2016 program is now full. We will be accepting applications for the Summer 2017 program in November 2016.
Participants in the program will conduct research and take part in group activities including seminars on cutting-edge areas of materials physics; workshops focusing on graduate programs, career opportunities in the physical sciences and engineering, and scientific communications skills; and field trips to laboratories on and off campus. You can get a better idea of these activities from the links above. For the Summer 2016 program the anticipated stipend is $5,000. There is an allowance for travel to/from Gainesville, FL, and also housing is provided. Weekends during the program will be left open for participants to explore the abundant attractions of North and Central Florida.
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.
