Princeton Astrophysics Undergraduate Summer Research Program

Princeton Astrophysics runs the Undergraduate Summer Research Program in which students carryout research projects under the supervision of faculty and postdoc advisors. Students selected for this program (similar to a REU program) can participate in projects with a range of levels of difficulty and sophistication, spanning all of experimental, observational, theoretical, and computational astronomy. In addition to gaining valuable experience in research, a great way to explore pursuing a career in the field, the program also organizes weekly colloquia and seminars to teach the students about many aspects of astronomical research.
