Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program at University of Idaho, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, builds on the groundwork provided in the classroom and gives students the ability to perform cutting edge scientific research in a real laboratory setting. As a participant in our REU program you will perform research as part of an established, internationally recognized physics department while enjoying a pleasant rural setting.
Undergraduate students will spend nine weeks at the University of Idaho performing research with an active research group. Participants will receive a stipend of $5000, and all housing and travel expenses are covered.
Where and When
The University of Idaho is located in scenic Moscow, Idaho just below Moscow Mountain, and surrounded by the undulating hills of the Palouse. The Department of Physics is located in the Engineering-Physics building. Students will check into their dormitories on Sun Jun 2 and begin work on Mon Jun 3. The nine-week program will end on Fri Aug 2.
