Description:
The University of Chicago Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Physics, supported by the National Science Foundation offers undergraduates the opportunity to gain research experience working in the laboratory or research group of a Physics Department faculty member. The program particularly encourages participation by members of underrepresented minority groups in science, and women. Supplementing this valuable practical experience, faculty and graduate students present special lectures to provide an overview of the wide-ranging research conducted in our Department. Ten to fifteen internships will be awarded for the ten-week program. The stipend for the full ten-week program will be $5,000. Housing will be provided, and there will be modest travel expense reimbursement.
