View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

Description:
The NanoScience and MicroSystems REU held at the University of New Mexico is a 10-week summer research internship program for undergraduate students studying chemistry, chemical engineering, materials science, and physics.

The NSMS REU program pays for the majority of student expenses - travel (up to $500), on-campus housing, a competitive $5,000 stipend, the cost of most activities - and focuses on the development of strong student-mentor relationships as well as laboratory and research skills. The program offers a range of recreational activities and opportunities to experience New Mexico.

The NSMS REU Program has projects ideal for students interested in nanotechnology and materials science. Projects generally fall into three major areas:

- Nanoscience of Biosystems

- Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion

- Microsystems

The UNM REU Program has been awarded NSF (National Science Foundation) grant funding for its 6th renewal and has recently expanded its focus to include broader areas of Nanoscience and Microsystems. Eligible students (must be a US citizen or permanent resident, currently enrolled in a college or university and attending in the Fall Semester following REU participation) are welcome to begin the application process by completing our convenient web-based form.
