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
