REU Sites

REU Sites: Physics

This listing will change as new REU Site awards are made. Sites will be added to or removed from this list as decisions are made on those proposals. Most Physics REU Sites provide opportunities spanning the full range of research of the indicated departments or laboratories, and include both experimental and theoretical activities. Some Sites focus on research in a particular sub-field or in a more specialized laboratory or facility. Others offer projects in related fields like astronomy and astrophysics, or in interdisciplinary areas like materials science or biophysics. Interested students can use the keyword search feature to identify those sites with projects in a particular area, or can simply explore each Site’s web pages to learn more about these programs. Physics students are also encouraged to consider REU Sites in related fields, including Materials Research, Chemistry, Biology, Computer Science, Engineering, and Geosciences, which often have components of research of interest to physicists.
