Keck Northeast Astronomy Consortium

The Keck Northeast Astronomy Consortium comprises astronomy faculty and students at eight small liberal arts colleges and universities in the northeast. Their goals are to promote astronomy research among their students and to foster faculty and student interaction among the eight campuses. They sponsor a student exchange program each summer and a student research symposium each fall.

Although originally funded by the W.M. Keck Foundation beginning in 1990, they are now funded by the National Science Foundation, under the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program.
