Undergraduate Students

Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, Arizona, has been a Research Experiences for Undergraduates site sponsored by the National Science Foundation since 1991.

Seven undergraduate students will work in Flagstaff with researchers from the NAU Dept. of Physics and Astronomy , the Lowell Observatory, the U. S. Geological Survey in Flagstaff, the U. S. Naval Observatory in Flagstaff, and the National Undergraduate Research Observatory Consortium. The research projects available vary from year to year, and have included planetary science, astrogeology, stellar astrophysics, instrumentation work, and extragalactic research.

Students will be enrolled at NAU and receive three hours of credit; tuition and fees will be covered by the program. The total stipend will be $5,450, and each student will receive up to $700 toward travel expenses. Housing is included with the program, and room choices are based on availability at the NAU dorms (i.e., single or shared rooms).
