Summer REU at West Virginia University

West Virginia University (WVU) are loooking for candidates for two summer research sites (Chemistry REU and Nanotechnology-NanoSAFE REU, both described below) in summer 2016. Students apply separately to each program.

Students from groups underrepresented within their disciplines (e.g., women, underrepresented minorities, students with disabilities), veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces, and students from socioeconomically depressed regions (e.g., Appalachia) are especially encouraged to apply to these programs.

1) The 2016 NSF-funded REU Site: Research in Chemistry at West Virginia University (May 23-July 29, 2016) is now accepting applications from undergraduates who 1) are majoring in chemistry or biochemistry (pre-majors also considered), 2) are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories, and 3) are interested in a research and training experience akin to that of a graduate student. Selected participants spend 10-weeks working on research on projects that address fundamental questions related to the chemistry of health and catalysis in chemistry. Projects focus on the potential of research to benefit society both directly and indirectly in the fields of health care, forensics/criminology, energy, sustainability, and transportation. Participant benefits include $5,000 stipend, lodging, meal expenses, and travel reimbursement to/from the Site. Review of completed applications will begin on March 18, 2016. For more information and link to the online application, visit the Chemistry REU website at http://undergraduateresearch.wvu.edu/reu-site-research-in-chemistry-at-wvu. Questions? Contact the WVU Office of Undergraduate Research at undergradresearch@mail.wvu.edu.

2) The 2016 NSF-funded NanoSAFE REU at West Virginia University (May 23-July 29, 2016) centering on Design, Characterization, and Toxicity Assessment of Safe Advanced Performance Nanomaterials is now accepting applications from undergraduates who 1) are majoring in science, technology, and engineering 2) are citizens, nationals, or permanent residents of the U.S. or its territories, and 3) are interested in nanoscience research and a training experience akin to that of a graduate student. Selected participants spend 10-weeks working on research on projects that address fundamental questions related to multifunctional nanomaterials. REU participants are trained on research projects that support the design of safer and more effective nanoparticles that have been characterized and assessed for potential toxicity.  The research activities focus on multifunctional nanomaterials and support improved material design with attention to properties that impact human and environmental health.  Students have access to cutting-edge technology in nanolithography, nanotemplating, material self-assembly, electrochemistry, spectroscopy, microscopy, fluidics, and unique tools required to elucidate complex facets of nanotoxicity. Upon completing this REU experience, undergraduate students will actively contribute to innovative research that advances nanotechnology manufacturing.  Participant benefits include $5,000 stipend, lodging, meal expenses, and travel reimbursement to/from the Site. Review of completed applications will begin on March 18, 2016.

Green Program 2016: Peru & Iceland

 

MARCH 13 – MARCH 20/21, 2016

ADDITIONAL SESSIONS: 

FEBRUARY 28 – MARCH 6  // MARCH 6 – MARCH 13

Iceland: Renewable Energy & Sustainability

Peru: Water Resource Management & Sustainable Practices

This Spring Break, we invite you to do more with your time off.

Join us on an abroad adventure to Peru or Iceland to gain hands-on industry exposure, check adrenaline-rushing adventure excursions off your bucket list, experience an exciting indigenous culture, receive academic credit & supercharge your resume, rediscover your passions, and more.

Think it’s good to be true? 

You don’t have to take our word for it –
check out what our GREEN Alumni have to say!

SUPERCHARGE YOUR RESUME

“The GREEN Program has not only better equipped me to get a job after graduation, but it has also helped me to realize my career path. I’ve gone on a few interviews and all of them have asked me about my experience on The GREEN Program. Talking about my experiences with such confidence and passion impressed my interviewers and I was offered a few internships.”

– Katie H., U of New Hampshire

BRING YOUR EDUCATION TO LIFE

“I participated in the most engaging and directly relevant classes of my educational career, I was given invaluable hands-on experience of our classroom learning through site visits where I could ask questions to industry professionals and gain a full understanding of what we’d been taught.” 

– Tom N., U of Edinburgh

JOIN STUDENT LEADERS FROM AROUND THE WORLD

“I was constantly shocked by the diversity and talent depth of my fellow students. I have never been surrounded by a group of people so passionate about sustainability and their work, and it was something I needed. I would say that was my favorite part of the program: just constantly being surrounded by the passion frenzy. I really can’t wait to get back in the classroom and bring that energy to fuel my academics, and those around me.” 

– Zack R., U of Oregon 


AND OF COURSE… GET YOUR ADVENTURE ON!

“I crossed over the mid-Atlantic ridge, hiked a mountain to a hot spring, and even got to swim in it. I saw and learned about some incredible power plants, jeep’ed up a river as well as a black sandy beach, explored a lava tunnel, saw the Aurora Borealis, gazed at an incredible number of waterfalls, hiked on a glacier, and SO much more.”

– Josh D., RIT

“The GREEN Program in Peru was the trip of a lifetime, and one that I’ll never forget. Having grown up in urban Kentucky, we didn’t have the easiest access to excursions like zip-lining, or white water rafting, or the chance to take in such magnificent scenery with mountains and glaciers. I loved every minute of it!” 

– Katie P., U of Louisville
