The University of New Mexico Physics and Astronomy REU Program

The 2018 Summer REU group

The University of New Mexico's Physics and Astronomy Department summer research internship program for undergraduate students begins Monday May 25 and ends Friday July 31, 2020.

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.

The UNM P&A REU Program has been awarded National Science Foundation (NSF) grant funding.

Applications for Summer 2020 have closed. 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 for the 2021 program beginning fall of 2020.

Please contact Jim Thomas and/or David Dunlap at if you have further questions.
