For the sixth straight year, the IfA hosted a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program funded by the National Science Foundation. The IfA program provides undergraduate students considering a career in science with the opportunity to work with professional astronomers as full-time summer research assistants. Ann Boesgaard, Kenneth Chambers, Lysa Chizmadia, Paul Coleman, Harald Ebeling, Shadia Habbal, Nader Haghighipour, Roberto Méndez, and David Tholen served as faculty mentors to the students.
