The Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program in Physical Sciences is funded by the U.S.
National Science Foundation and has been in place for over 15 years. Our program brings approximately
eight students to the American Museum of Natural History in New York City each summer for a ten-week
experience conducting research with our curators, faculty, and postdoctoral fellows in astronomy and in earth
and planetary science. In addition to conducting original research projects throughout the summer, students
receive training in ethics, networking, communication and other career-building skills. At the conclusion of
the internships, students deliver oral presentations of their work and prepare publication quality research
