The Lamat REU program aims to increase retention, graduation rates, and PhD admission for students enrolled in two-year or four-year colleges. Program participants engage in inquiry-based learning in astronomy and planetary sciences using state-of-the-art astrophysical simulations as a common pillar. We accept applications from all undergraduate students, but we particularly encourage students from community colleges to apply.

If selected, participants are strongly encouraged to attend a “Winter Science Computational Boot Camp” that prepares them for the summer program. This year’s Boot Camp will be held January 4-6,2023 at UC Santa Cruz. A stipend, transporation, and lodging will be provided for participants. Alternative structures of support will be implemented for participants that are engaged in classes during the boot camp.

Lamat’s 2023 eight-week summer program will run from June 26 to August 18, 2023. A stipend be provided for participation in Lamat.
