This is a new type of REU program providing students with their first formal faculty mentored research experience. We are interested in applications submitted by undergraduates from any university, with a goal of serving students enrolled at institutions where research opportunities for undergraduates are minimal or non-existent. Experimental and computational projects in diverse areas of physics and astronomy are available. Additionally, multiple institutions across the US host the cohort of participating undergraduate students. During this 10-week program, students live on a respective host campus while working alongside faculty mentors and undergraduates from the host institution. Interactions among the students in the six-campus REU cohort take place on-line with an end of the summer in-person meeting tentatively scheduled at Central Washington University.
The list of available research projects for the Summer 2015 REU program are listed below. Select the appropriate link to learn more about each respective project, including where they are performed.
