Research Experiences for Undergraduates – Summer 2024

Deadline: 11:59pm, February 1, 2024

Our Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program provides students with the opportunity to pursue an astrophysics-based interdisciplinary research project in collaboration with Northwestern University faculty in:

  • Astronomy
  • Applied Math
  • Chemistry
  • Earth and Planetary Science (EPS)
  • Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (CS)
  • and/or Physics.

The program includes computer programming and science communication workshops, research talks, educational excursions, and a $5400 stipend (over nine weeks). The program also provides funding to cover travel to/from Chicago for students joining from outside the Chicago area. REU covers the cost of on-campus housing, and also provides financial support for each student to present their summer research at a meeting of the American Astronomical Society.
