Description:
Our summer REU program provides undergraduate students the opportunity to pursue an astrophysics-based interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with Northwestern University faculty in Astronomy, Applied Math, Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Science (EPS), Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (CS), and/or Physics.

The stipend for our REU students is $4500. We also provide up to $590 for travel to/from Chicago. We cover the cost of on-campus housing, and we also provide financial support for each student to present their summer research at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
