The MagLab REU program offers a wide range of research experiences in physics, chemistry, biological sciences, geochemistry, materials science and magnet science and engineering. Participants work closely with MagLab mentors on a research project. Students also participate in weekly seminars and colloquia that broaden their knowledge of MagLab research and future careers. Participants will receive a $6,500 stipend for their participation in the program that is given in two increments during the summer. Housing is provided through the program should you need it. We cannot reimburse housing costs that are not through our program. We can provide travel support for participants to come to the MagLab on the first day of the program and to return home on the last day of the program. The travel support is up to $800.
- Runs from May 28th – August 2nd, 2024.
Students will be selected by mentors at any one of the MagLab's 2 locations:
- Florida State University, in Tallahassee, FL;
- University of Florida in Gainesville, FL
To see the types of research projects that past participants have conducted, please visit the section below on this webpage.
