We began accepting applications for the summer of 2019 on December 1, 2018.
The applications deadline has now passed, and we are no longer accepting
applications for 2019.
We anticipate making offers to 11 undergraduates starting on March 1 (but see below).
Important note: the 2019 REU program at SAO is contingent upon approval of our
funding by NSF. We anticipate that NSF will notify us of our
funding status in February 2019. In the meanwhile we will process applications
in the usual way, as we have done contiuously since 1994, as described below.
The 2019 session will run for ten weeks, starting Sunday June 2 (move-in day)
through Saturday August 10.
Although the application deadline has passed, it may be possible to check application

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
