Summer 2022 applications are now open!
Note regarding COVID-19: We recognize the uncertainty of planning for summer 2022 in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and specifically the possibility that in-person experiences may not be possible. We are planning an in-person program if possible, but may have to pivot to a modified virtual program. The details below are based on a fully in-person program; you can read one student’s account of our virtual summer 2020 experience in this blog post, and we did host a successful hybrid program in 2021. We will update applicants for 2022 as plans evolve.
The Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology, through support from the National Science Foundation, hosts a Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) program focused on Sustainable Nanotechnology. Selected participants will spend 10 weeks conducting research in collaboration with one more principal investigators of the Center for Sustainable Nanotechnology. Each student will be located at one of the participating institutions but will interact with faculty and students at all institutions via in-person and online interactions. (CSN institutions include the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Augsburg University, Boston University, the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station, Johns Hopkins University, University of California-Riverside, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Iowa, University of Maryland-Baltimore County, University of Minnesota, and University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.)
