The High-Performance Materials Institute (HPMI) at the Florida State University will host a summer training program in Nanomaterials and Processing Engineering. The Diversity in Research and Engineering of Advanced Materials (DREAM) Training program, sponsored by the Air Force Research Lab Munitions Directorate (AFRL RW) at Eglin Air Force Base, will provide undergraduate and Graduate U.S. citizens from the under-represented groups in the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) disciplines, the opportunity to enhance their research experience in Science and Engineering.

The selected participants will work on research projects requested by the AFRL RW. These projects will include research on nanomaterials, multiscale composite fabrication, and developmental work on intrinsic structural health monitoring through triboluminescence.

The program will be held at FSU’s Materials Research Building. Stipends (which include a travel), and lodging, will be provided.

This program is open only to African-Americans. Selection will be based on academic performance and faculty recommendation, US citizenship or permanent residency required.
