SAO REU Summer Intern Program: Application

We will begin accepting applications for the summer of 2020 on December 1, 2019. We anticipate making offers to 11 undergraduates starting on March 1.

Important note: in February 2019, the Astronomy REU program at SAO was informed that our funding request for 2019 and 2020 was approved by NSF!

As usual, the 2020 session will run for ten weeks, probably starting Sunday June 7 (move-in day) and going through Saturday August 15. Those dates are subject to change without notice, depending on availability of housing on the Harvard campus.

Because our program is funded by a federal agency (NSF), we can only accept undergraduates who are US citizens or green card holders. We strongly encourage women and members of underrepresented groups to apply.

Our interns will receive a stipend. Housing will be provided free of charge for the duration of the internship. Questions about these and other matters are addressed on our FAQ page.

Applications will close on February 1, 2020. To receive full consideration, applications must be completed by January 31, including all letters of recommendation.
