2015 Research Experiences for Undergraduates
We invite undergraduates to apply for research opportunities for summer REU programs. Our 2016 REU dates are Tuesday May 31 through Friday August 5. Preference will be given to physics students with superior records who are now completing the freshman, sophomore or junior year. For the 10 weeks of participation, a student will receive a $5000 stipend, plus free dormitory room and rec center services.
We recommend that your application materials be completed by February 1, 2016. Please fill out the Application Form directly on line and submit. Please email your unofficial transcripts and two letters of recommendations to [[evwilk]]. Please address the letters of recommendation to Professor Deconinck. The letters should comment on your interest in and potential for research. They might discuss your background in physics and the extent to which a summer research experience would further your education, possible graduate study, and future career. We prefer the letters emailed to [[evwilk]].
This program is funded in part by the NSF and was last offered in the summer of 2015. Stipends from NSF funds are restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. International applicants with a stipend through their home institution are welcome to apply. If selected, we will provide research housing. This program provides undergraduates genuine involvement in actual research. Physics-related research projects are available in the Physics and the Applied Science departments. We have collaborations at the nearby laboratories: Thomas Jefferson Lab and NASA Langley Research Center.
Other summer programs may be found at the NSF.
The College of William and Mary is an Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action employer.
