Posted by:
December 10, 2021

The Department of Physics and Astronomy will offer paid summer research internships through our NSF-funded REU program where students will explore how wave concepts are manifest in a broad range of physics and astronomy subfields through individual research projects and interactions with others. See our promotional video for the Physics and Astronomy program.


  • Photons in Applied Materials
  • Wavefunctions in Quantum Materials
  • Phonons and Shockwaves
  • Waves Revealing the Cosmos

The 10-week program runs in conjunction with other programs on campus (~80 other STEM REU students) and includes professional development seminars, career oriented trips (e.g. LIGO Hanford – gravity wave observatory), social activities, and networking, including presenting at the WSU Undergraduate Summer Research Symposium.

  • On-Campus Housing
  • Food Budget
  • Travel
  • Stipend: $6,000


  • Undergraduate students who have not yet obtained their bachelors degree
  • U.S. Citizen or permanent resident
