Research Experiences for Undergraduates

The University of New Mexico Physics and Astronomy REU Program

The Physics and Astronomy REU held at the University of New Mexico, beginning in Summer 2018, is a 10-week summer research internship program for undergraduate students studying physics and astronomy, including radio astronomy and laser applications.

The program pays for the majority of student expenses - travel (up to $600), on-campus housing, a $5,000 stipend,  the cost of most activities -- and focuses on the development of strong student-mentor relationships as well as laboratory and  research skills. The program offers a range of recreational activities and opportunities to experience New Mexico. See the list of projects you can be a part of!

The UNM P&A REU Program has been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) grant funding. Eligible students (must be a US citizen or permanent resident, currently enrolled in a college or university and attending in the Fall Semester following REU participation) are welcome to apply.
