This program is funded in part by the NSF and was last offered in the summer of 2010. Stipends from NSF funds are restricted to U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Funds to support others are sometimes available. This program provides undergraduates genuine involvement in actual research. Physics-related research projects are available in the Physics and the Applied Science departments.

Other summer programs may be found at the NSF.
