Synchrotron Radiation Center Summer REU

***** Summer 2011 SRC-REU Program Information ******

Research Experience for Undergraduates at the Synchrotron Radiation Center (SRC)

The SRC light source is funded by the National Science Foundation and uses an electron storage ring to provide synchrotron light as a tool for doing scientific research. We are located southeast of Madison, Wisconsin.

Our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program runs for 10 weeks from May 31 through August 6, 2011. Participants will work with a mentor, graduate students and SRC scientists in the completion of a research project. The experience culminates with, among other things, participation in a poster session and a presentation at a research symposium. Participants receive a generous stipend in addition to paid travel to and from Madison, housing, health insurance (if needed), transportation to SRC, and a partial meal allowance. Participants are housed on the UW-Madison campus and interact with other summer program students of various disciplines creating a community of research scholars.

Participants and projects from previous years can be seen online at:
