We are excited to share that we will be hosting an NSF-sponsored Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program in physics at UT Dallas this summer. The UT Dallas Physics REU will take place from May 28 to August 3, 2018. The REU Fellows will be immersed in an exciting ten-week summer research program, carefully mentored by UTD faculty. The key objectives of the program are to instill in the REU Fellows the excitement of research and careers in science, and to build their research skills both independently and in research teams. This program includes a $5,000 stipend, housing, 21 meals per week, access to the gym, and multiple social events (~$8500 total package).
The program has core areas in
-Atomic, Molecular, and Optical Physics
-Cosmology and Gravitation

9th annual Collin College Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Student Research Conference | Call for Papers
I wanted to take a moment to invite you and your undergraduate students to participate in the 9th annual Collin College Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Student Research Conference.
It takes place April 18 & 19, 2018 on the Spring Creek Campus (2800 East Spring Creek Parkway. Plano, Texas, 75074) and is open to all undergraduates from all disciplines.
The call for papers is attached here.
Visit our website at: http://www.collin.edu/conference/studentresearch/
You will find the call for papers, FAQs, maps, past programs, etc. You can also watch an 8-minute video on the conference background and submission process which can be accessed here: https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cblrFp28sX
In a nutshell, students that have conducted or are currently conducting research (experiments, social science research papers, art displays, etc.), are encouraged to submit. If accepted, you will present on either April 18th or 19th, 2018 in whatever format they prefer (roundtable, panel, performance, poster board, etc.).
The Top 6 (competed) papers will receive “Top Paper” honors. Four of those winners will receive a $1,250.00 scholarship!
The event is free, open to the public, fully catered, and an exceptional way for Undergrads to experience an academic conference. In fact, even if you are not presenting, we encourage you to attend as audience members!
I hope you’re having a great week!
By way of a quick introduction, my name is Will. I am a current student at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School and an alum of The Horizons School. I recently joined the Horizons team to help identify candidates for our fully funded Horizons fellowship program.
The Horizons Fellowship is a fully-funded technology immersion fellowship for top university students from around the world. As technology continues to play a larger role on the world stage, whether it be in business, politics, art etc., we have been reaching out to various Southern Methodist University clubs to encourage students to gain a solid technical foundation.
Past Horizonites have come from schools like Harvard, Princeton, UPenn/Wharton, Columbia, and more. We’ve had engineers, business students, liberal arts majors and designers take our program – they’ve gone on to receive product management, engineering, and venture capital offers from firms such as Google, Zappos.com, Yelp, Optimizely, Redfin, Insight Venture Partners, and Slack. Others are winning global hackathons and building their own startup ideas.
I would be thrilled and honored if you could forward out this opportunity to interested members of your club. Our programs are open to students of any year and any major – we encourage candidates with diverse backgrounds and interests to apply!
