SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAM
The NSF REU Program Imaging in the Physical Sciences is seeking Native American/Alaskan Native undergraduate students for their multi-disciplinary summer research program, which has a special focus in the recruitment and support of Native Americans.
Deadline: Feb 12, 2014
Stipend: $5000 + Travel Expenses
Program Dates: June 8 to August 16, 2014
The NSF REU Program Imaging in the Physical Sciences builds on the strength of the research and educational programs in the interdisciplinary Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science at the Rochester Institute of Technology, extending a rich history of undergraduate research experiences with RIT students to students from beyond RIT’s walls. Our program introduces young scientists to research in a highly interdisciplinary, team-oriented setting, preparing the students for the type of goal-oriented research they are likely to encounter in real-world environments. RIT is now the third largest undergraduate private technical university in the United States.
Our program specifically aims to recruit and support Native American students as a key group of participants in the program. We have a Native American faculty member on hand throughout the program, and funding to send our Native American participants to share their research at Native American undergraduate research conferences such as SACNAS or AISES to support you developing engagement in the Native American scientific community.
Imaging in the Physical Sciences is designed to draw students from all year levels and from a range of undergraduate majors, including students who have just completed their freshman or sophomore years. Qualified students will have completed the first year of a physical science, engineering, mathematics, or computer science program. Applicants will submit a transcript, resume, statement of research and career interests, and two letters of recommendation.
