Physics & Astronomy REU

The ten-week, NSF-funded REU Program introduces students to the nature of research-oriented careers in physics & astronomy, and fosters development of research-related skills and knowledge. Participants are matched with faculty mentors based on student interests. Weekly seminars, field trips and workshops provide students with additional skills development, professional development topics such as ethics and patents/intellectual property, and an introduction to common research resources. Many events occur in conjunction with concurrent LSU summer undergraduate science programs in space science, computational science, and biomedical sciences.

Eligibility: US citizen or permanent resident; current UG student who has completed at least the general (freshman, introductory) physics courses
