The summer REU program is sponsored by NSF-Nanotechnology Undergraduate Education program (NSF-NUE). This program runs from May 30th to July 25th, 2012 and it is open to Georgia Tech undergraduates who are US citizens or permanent residents across schools in the colleges of Engineering and Sciences. Specifically, participants are expected to learn the fundamentals of nanoscale science and engineering, gain hands-on experience with research tools, work in research labs on nanotechnology-related research projects, and ultimately translate their learning into modules for K-12 education.
Full scholarship in the amount of $5,000 (including housing allowance) will be provided to the awardees and additional $2,000 research expenses (for lab supplies and access to GT shared research facilities) will be allocated to research groups. Awardees are expected to perform research full time without taking any summer classes for the duration of the internship.
