The first observations of gravitational waves by LIGO have opened up the dawn of the gravitational wave astronomy age. Soon, we will see the birth of multimessenger astronomy, as gravitational wave and electromagnetic observations are combined with theoretical models to give us new insights into astrophysical phenomena that were previously unavailable to science. A key step in moving this project forward will be the training of students that will form the next generation of scientific leaders.

We invite you to join researchers from RIT's Center for Computational Relativity and Gravitation, Laboratory for Multiwavelength Astrophysics, Center for Detectors, and the John D. Hromi Center for Quality & Applied Statistics for a 10-week immersive research experience. Building on RIT's history as a center for undergraduate research, students in the Multimessenger Astrophysics REU, one of seven on campus, will join a vibrant community and work with top-flight researchers.

REU participants receive a stipend of $6,000, free on-campus housing*, and both travel and meal allowances. Support will be provided after the summer component ends for travel to conferences to present research work.

*Please note that all program details are subject to change based on the campus-wide response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
