Research Experiences for Undergraduates in Multifunctional Materials
The online application for the NanoSAFE REU at West Virginia University is now closed. We will not be accepting any more applications for the 2014 program. Completed applications are now under review. Please be patient as this process may take until the end of March as we continue to make offers until all positions are filled.
We offer a unique summer research experience for undergraduate students in science, engineering, or mathematics disciplines. The program is funded by the National Science Foundation Divisions of Materials Research and Chemistry (DMR-1004431) with recreational activities funded by WVU Research Corporation and the WVU Eberly College of Arts and Sciences. Our program runs May 19 – July 25, 2013 and takes place at West Virginia University in Morgantown, WV.
Research Projects from Summer 2013 can be found here.
Once you have completed your online application for the NanoSAFE REU program, NanoSAFE would appreciate your assistance in completing the 2013 NanoSAFE REU Applicant Self-Identification form. The information in this form will be used to assess NanoSAFE’s affirmative action effectiveness and in meeting compliance obligations under state and federal law. Completion of the form is voluntary and will not be used in the evaluation of applications. This information will be stored in the NanoSAFE Office.
*Note: a complete application includes the online application, 1 official undergraduate transcript, and 1 letter of recommendation.
