Summer Scholars Applications Now Being Accepted

Each year for 7 weeks during the summer, the Materials Processing Center (MPC) and the Center for Materials Science and Engineering (CMSE) co-sponsor a Research Internship Program. The program attracts some of the best science and engineering undergraduates from across the country to conduct graduate-level materials research. Students can select from a wide array of projects available.

This year's Summer Scholar Internship Program will run from June 15 - August 5, 2017.

For more information about the Internship Program, please refer to the Summer Scholar Quick Facts and the FAQ portion of our website.

The application deadline is February 10, 2017.                                register
