International Summer Research Program in Gravitational-Wave Physics:
Research Experiences for Undergraduates around the world


Details: This is an NSF initiative. Undergraduate participants will normally receive a $6,000 stipend, travel health insurance, an allowance for travel to/from our briefing and debriefing meetings, and their host institution, and for housing, for which we usually arrange to pay directly. Housing will be organized by the host institution. It can be in a student dormitory or a small apartment.

Attention: Generally, students will be responsible for ALL ground transportation expenses, and all luggage charges they incur (so, in your own interests, travel light). See other travel hints here.

Eligibility: IREU participants must be undergraduate students and must be citizens or legal permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. We particularly seek applications from under-represented minorities, and from students at small schools with limited research resources.
