SNF Paideia Fellowship

At its best, higher education prepares students for living productive and fulfilling personal, professional, and civic lives. One of the most important roles of a university is to encourage open dialogue, the free exchange of ideas, and civil and robust expression of divergent views, on campus and around the world. This mission has never been more important than it is today, when social, cultural, economic and political divides—and the inability to talk across them in constructive ways—strain the very fabric of civil society and democracy.

NNCI Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Nanotechnology

NNCI Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Nanotechnology

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs are an excellent way for undergraduates to become acquainted with scientific research and graduate student life. REU programs typically consist of an intensive 10 week summer research experience at a university different than your own. Most research centers sponsor REU-like programs as part of their education and outreach efforts.
