Interested in Summer Undergraduate Research in Physics?

Georgia Tech Broadening Participation in Physics-Summer Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program

Physics majors are invited to apply for a ten-week (Monday, May 23 - Friday, July 29, 2022) research program hosted by Georgia Tech School of Physics.

Working under the supervision of a physics faculty member, participants will focus on a single research project but also gain a broad perspective on research in physics by participating in the dynamic research environment. Available projects span the field of physics ranging from condensed matter and atomic physics to astrophysics and biophysics.  In addition to full time research, undergraduate researchers will participate in a number of professional development seminars, research horizon lunches, and social activities with other summer REU students.

Participants will receive a stipend of $6,000, travel allowances, and apartment-style housing on the Georgia Tech campus.   Participants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. and currently enrolled in an undergraduate degree program at a U.S. college or university.

To apply, see:

Application Deadline: Extended to March 1, 2022. Applications will be accepted after this date, until the positions are filled. You are encouraged to apply immediately.
