CUR Physics and Astronomy REU Application

The research mentors participating in the CUR Physics and Astronomy REU program hope to populate this REU program with undergraduates who exhibit a wide range of research skills, from students for whom this will be their first research experience to those who have already completed a research project.  Students can be first-year undergraduates through super-seniors with applications from community colleges encouraged.

We strongly suggest reviewing this online application and prepare your responses to the questions found in the form using a text editor (e.g. Word).  When finished developing your responses to all questions, cut and paste all responses into the online application at one time.
