Physics REU Leadership Group (PRLG)

Lending Your Wisdom and Time
All Physics REU site directors or their representatives are all members of the PRLG. Other undergraduate research program directors (for example from DMR or Astronomy) can also join the PRLG. Initiatives funded under NSF grants to the Physics REU Leadership group may be restricted to those members funded by the same program.
