Research Experiences for
Undergraduates in Astronomy
& Planetary Science
Northern Arizona University (NAU) in Flagstaff, Arizona, has been a Research Experiences for Undergraduates site sponsored by the National Science Foundation since 1991. Undergraduates (typically, upper level) are paid a stipend to work on a research project during the summer months. Our REU pays well and is a great opportunity to, get an idea of what doing research is like, gain knowledge, enhance your skill-sets, research outside of your home institution, meet other like-minded students who are interested in astronomy, planetary science and explore Flagstaff and Arizona.
Applications are highly competitive.
It is our hope and goal to run a normal REU program in summer, 2021, with our interns working in person in Flagstaff, side by side with their mentors. However, if we are not able to do so, due to the pandemic, our fallback plan will be to offer remote research experiences where possible, as we successfully did in summer, 2020.
