Boston University – Physics Research Opportunity (REU)

The Boston University – Physics Research Opportunity (BU-PRO) Program at Boston University is designed to promote access to research opportunities for talented undergraduate students, with particular emphasis on students from community colleges and small four-year colleges who might not otherwise have the opportunity to participate in research, minority groups, and women. The BU-PRO Program is supported by funds from the National Science Foundation (NSF-REU) and Boston University.

The BU-PRO Program is open to non-BU students who wish to conduct research in the sciences or technology fields. The program consists of ten weeks of full-time research in a Boston University lab, mentored by a BU faculty member. On-campus housing, a stipend, weekly enrichment activities, and social events are also included.

Program dates: Tentatively June 1, 2021 – Aug. 6, 2021

Preferred application deadline: February 8, 2021 (Rolling Admission Policy)

We hope to run our program in-person but are prepared to run it remotely, if necessary. Currently, we are unsure what will be allowed or possible for summer 2021.
