WHAT POSSIBILITIES EXIST?
Summer Programs in Physics
  • National Science Foundation
  • Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU)
  • Integrative Graduate Education and Research
    Traineeship (IGERT)
  • Government Laboratories
  • Large Labs (academic year internships and summer
    research)
  • Argonne National Laboratory (Chicago)
  • Brookhaven National Laboratory (NY)
  • Oak Ridge National Laboratory (TN)
  • Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (CA)
  • Sandia National Laboratories (CA and NM)
  • Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Lab
    (ID)
  • Most NASA centers
  • Smaller Labs (summer research only)
  • Princeton Plasma Physics Lab
  • National Renewable Energy Lab
  • Stanford Linear Accelerator Center

When to Apply? Soon many programs have
December and January deadlines
Tips? Put effort and thought into your
statement of interest Research the opportunities
and know why youre interested Get application
materials (letters, application, transcripts) in
on time For the future develop a skills set
(computational and experimental)
