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 in-person, 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.
The anticipated dates of the program are June 5, 2023 – August 11, 2023.
AS OF FEB. 27, WE HAVE JUST LEARNED THAT NSF PLANS TO FUND US TO OFFER THE BU-PRO PROGRAM IN SUMMER 2023. HOWEVER, WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO MAKE ADMISSIONS DECISIONS AND OFFERS UNTIL APPROXIMATELY MID-MARCH.
WE UNDERSTAND THAT MANY APPLICANTS WILL NEED TO MAKE PLANS AND ACCEPT OTHER OFFERS BEFORE THEN, BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE DELAY IS UNAVOIDABLE.
Preferred application deadline: February 6, 2023 (Rolling Admission Policy)
