Project Description

The main goal of this program is to provide an exciting and nurturing research experience for students, one that will encourage them to pursue careers as research scientists. Each student is paired with a faculty advisor, and is often supported by interested postdocs and advanced graduate students. Students participate in a 10-week research program, including in most cases a machine shop course. Students meet weekly to discuss their research progress with the program directors and to attend a lecture series on research opportunities in physics.

At the end of the 10-week program students present short talks on their research accomplishments and write summary reports on their projects.

It is anticipated that the program will provide a 10-week stipend of $5000, campus housing and meal service, and a travel supplement of up to $500 (pending grant renewal from the National Science Foundation).
