Description: The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program of the National Science Foundation (NSF) provides opportunities for talented undergraduate students to participate in research projects during a 10-week period each summer. REU ""sites"" are established by the NSF in all fields of science, mathematics, and engineering at host institutions throughout the US. The University of Washington REU Physics site was established in 1995, and has been co-hosted annually by the Department  of Physics and the Department of Energy's National Institute for Nuclear Theory. The program directors are Jerry Seidler and Alejandro Garcia.

The REU Physics program at the University of Washington differs from some others in that it covers most subfields of physics. All of the major groups in the department are participating: astrophysics and cosmology, atomic physics, condensed matter physics, nuclear physics, particle physics, physics education and biological physics. Our Department of Physics is famous for ""table-top"" experiments that push the bounds of precision. We also have vigorous theory groups, including the Institute for Nuclear Theory, which brings large numbers of visiting faculty to the UW year around.
