Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) at Notre Dame

Physics Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU)


The physics REU program provides opportunities for undergraduate physics majors to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of physics. Students come to Notre Dame and work with a professor for 10 weeks, are granted stipends, university housing, and assistance with travel and food expenses.

The students will work closely with faculty and graduate students on a variety of current research projects. The summer program not only provides each student direct experience with a specific project, but also provides important exposure to all areas of physics research.

The REU program provides valuable research experience, to help students decide if physics research is a path they would like to pursue. Students who are in those groups traditionally underrepresented in sciences (women, members of underrepresented minorities, and those with disabilities) are particularly urged to apply.
