Past KPNO REU Programs (1999-2014)

The KPNO REU program provided an exceptional opportunity for undergraduates considering a career in science to engage in substantive research activities with scientists working in the forefront of contemporary astrophysics. Each REU student was hired as a full-time research assistant to work on specific aspects of major ongoing research projects such as the origin, nature, and evolution of stars, galaxies and stellar systems, observational cosmology, analysis of Hubble Space Telescope and Spitzer Space Telescope images, and Kepler Mission light curves. As part of their research activities, REU students developed expertise in astronomical data reduction and analysis.
