The program encourages undergraduate students to participate in the development of gravitational-wave astronomy through the LIGO Project. Selected students will work on summer research projects either at the Caltech campus in Pasadena, California or at the LIGO Observatory sites in Washington or Louisiana. The program runs from mid-June through the end of August 2020. Considering the fact that the summer vacation period in major Indian undergraduate institutions starts early, LIGO/Caltech has agreed to host the Indian students during the period from mid-May through the end of July 2020. The selected candidates are required to attend the full program. 

Online applications should be submitted before the deadline of 10 January 2020. The applicants should also arrange two recommendation letters to be sent directly to the e-mail ligosurf (at) gw-indigo (dot) org prior to the deadline. More information is available on this website.
