We are especially interested in applications from students from minority groups who are underrepresented in physics or who come from schools which don't have graduate research programs.
Participants must must be enrolled at an accredited US college or university and be graduating after December 2012.
At the end of our program some participants may be selected to travel to a regional professional meeting to give a presentation on their research results.
