The Mathematics Department runs a 10 week summer research program, aimed at rising junior and senior undergraduate math (and closely related) majors. Note that this year in particular, we have a couple of projects that are looking for physics students. Students participating in the program work closely with faculty members and graduate students in a small group setting.
