Undergraduate Summer Research Fund

This program helped undergraduates experience cutting-edge nanoscale research at UVa. Students and Faculty members submitted a joint proposal to support their project. Each selected summer research proposal received up to $3,000. Under faculty advisory, students immersed themselves in the laboratory environment for the summer culminating in a short summary of their work and findings. Most students reported that their summer research influenced their capstone projects and, for several students, will likely influence their graduate work as well.

Applications for Summer 2015 are currently open. Completed applications can be sent to Tonya Reynolds at
