The Department of Physics and Astronomy receives information about research experiences for undergraduates from various programs throughout the year. We will post those here (in no particular order). Please note that this is not an endorsement of any particular program. If you are interested in a program you see listed here (or one that you find elsewhere), please talk to your advisor about whether or not it would be a good fit for your goals.
