2019 Summer Undergraduate Research Program
Each year, nanoSTAR Institute invites undergraduate students to apply to spend the summer in the laboratories of University of Virginia research faculty. Our faculty submit projects that need additional student help, and we match students to projects based on their interests and abilities. Projects include an element of nanotechnology/nanoscience. Students get hands-on laboratory experience while learning more about nanotechnology/nanoscience. They also receive mentoring and help in preparing oral and poster presentations. The summer session culminates in a poster session, which helps prepare young researchers for academic and professional activities. Prior to submitting an application, students must attend the student/faculty mixer. There, faculty will present the projects they have submitted for summer work. Students attend the mixer to identify a project, and that project information will be a part of the application process. Mark your calendars for March 29, which is when we will hold the faculty/student mixer. The mixer will be held in the Rodman Room in Thornton Hall from 3:00 until 5:00 pm. Please contact Dawn Kidd at firstname.lastname@example.org to save your space at the mixer.
