NSF REU at K-State: Interactions of Matter, Light and Learning 

The K-State REU program offers summer fellowships to do world-class research in our friendly physics department in the scenic Flinthills. We are funded by the National Science Foundation. 

After careful consideration of the current COVID-19 situation in Manhattan and consultation with the National Science Foundation and our university personnel, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Physics Research Experiences for Undergraduates program here at Kansas State University.  Due to our growing concerns surrounding the potentially overwhelming effects of the COVID-19 virus, we feel that this is the best way to proceed. We are very disappointed that we are unable to operate our program this summer but know that it is the best decision based on the information that we have today.

The K-State Physics REU 2021 Application will be available in late fall of 2020

Rolling admissions begin February 18

You must be an enrolled college student who is a US citizen or permanent resident to be eligible for participation in this NSF-funded program.
