Description 
Now in its 32nd year, the University of Notre Dame’s REU Program provides opportunities for undergraduate physics majors to experience hands-on participation in research in many areas of physics. The program gives you valuable research experience, to help you decide if physics research is right for you. You will work closely with faculty and graduate students on a variety of current research projects and benefit from a number of activities organized to enrich your experience. These include: weekly seminars, a course on computer programming, a GRE preparation course, ethics workshops, a workshop on applying to graduate schools, field trips to nearby national laboratories, and the REU Symposium where you will present the results of your research. You will also maintain a logbook and write a project report. In addition, a variety of recreational and social activities are organized to make your stay with us “fun”.
Qualifications 
Open to Physics majors. Applicants must be US citizens or permanent residents. International students are considered only if clear evidence is provided for financial support from other sources.
