Research Experience for Undergraduates

The Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) site at historical Alabama A&M University in Huntsville, AL., home of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center and Redstone Arsenal, will offer undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct various types of physics research. Our program is designed especially for juniors and seniors majoring in the STEM fields: sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics. During the eight-week summer program, each student will work with physics faculty mentors and graduate students on cutting-edge experiments. Research findings will be reported, lectures and mini-courses attended, and recreational activities enjoyed.

  • $4000 stipend for ten weeks
  • up to $1500 allowance for room, board and transportation 

Research areas, examples:

  • optics/lasers
