Participants in the program will conduct research and take part in group activities including seminars on cutting-edge areas in condensed matter and applied physics; workshops focusing on graduate programs, career opportunities in the physical sciences and engineering, and scientific communications skills; and field trips to laboratories on and off campus. The program is interdisciplinary with mentors from physics, chemistry, and several engineering departments. You can get a better idea of these activities from the program web site. For the Summer 2021 program the anticipated stipend is $5,500. There is an allowance for travel to/from Gainesville, FL, and also housing is provided. Weekends during the program will be left open for participants to explore the abundant attractions of North and Central Florida.
The University of Florida is now open for undergraduate research, and we expect to run this summer's REU program in person in Gainesville as usual; however, if we can not due to the pandemic, the program will run in a virtual format.
Additional Salary Information: The stipend for the summer program is $5500. There is an additional allowance for travel to/from Gainesville, FL, and also housing is provided.
