About the Program

With the support of the Department of Defense Awards to Stimulate and Support Undergraduate Research Education (DOD ASSURE) program, administered by the National Science Foundation Research Experience for Undergraduates (NSF REU) program, we offer a nine-week summer program in nanomaterials research in the beautiful rural New England college town of Hanover. Participants work on projects at the forefront of nanomaterials research. Students choose between experimental and theoretical investigations of materials' properties. Professors work closely with the undergraduate students to help them accomplish their research goals, to learn how to communicate their results orally and in writing, and to help them develop as responsible scholars. Weekly group discussion sessions and field trips to industrial laboratories, where students view materials research in the "real world" are all a part of the summer experience.

The program is open to US Citizens or permanent residents.

REU participants receive a $4050 stipend, paid housing, a $750 lab supplies budget, and up to $700 of travel reimbursement for travel to and from the program to their home or home institution.
