With support from the United States Department of Energy (DOE), the 27th Annual Hampton University Graduate Studies (HUGS) summer school is scheduled to run from June 4 through June 22, 2012 at the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility (Jefferson Lab) in Newport News, VA.

HUGS is a summer school designed for second and third year experimental or theoretical Nuclear/Particle physics graduate students who have finished (or nearly finished) their coursework. Students who are well into a research project are encouraged to apply as well. Acceptance into the program is competitive. Students will receive one transferable credit hour from Hampton University. The 2012 school will focus primarily on experimental and theoretical topics of high current interest in strong interaction physics.
Speakers and Topics:

While attending the HUGS at Jefferson Lab summer school, students will attend all lectures and seminars offered. The program is simultaneously intensive, friendly, and casual. All lecturers are internationally renown and leaders in their fields. The students will be housed on site at Jefferson Lab. There will be many opportunities to interact with Jefferson Lab staff, as well as the lecturers, other graduate students and visitors. Students receive excellent insight into the type of physics to be performed at Jefferson Lab in the upcoming years.

Funding limitations require us to restrict the number of fellowships that will be awarded.

Each fellowship will cover tuition, fees, room and board, in addition to reimbursement of most, if not all, of the student's domestic, second-class round-trip airfare or mileage, whichever is less. Students will need to supply funds for incidentals, extra meals, etc.
