There is a new NSF-sponsored REU program in physics at Case Western Reserve University. The program is described at http://www.phys.cwru.edu/reu/. It is scheduled to run this summer from June 1 through August 7. They are seeking highly motivated undergraduates who wish to engage in an intensive ten-week research experience mentored by a CWRU faculty member. The application deadline is April 25.
