2023 CNF REU Program Announcement
2023 CNF REU Program Announcement*
During the summer of 2023, the Cornell NanoScale Science & Technology Facility will host a Research Experiences for Undergraduates (CNF REU) Program from June 6th through August 11th. Engineering and science students with broad interests across disciplines focusing on nanotechnology are eligible to apply (see complete list of restrictions and eligibility requirements online).
The chosen undergraduates taking part in this ten-week program will receive hands-on nanoscience and technology experience through research, with applications to bio-engineering, chemistry, electronics, materials science, optics, optoelectronics, physics, and the life sciences. CNF REU interns work with their assigned faculty and graduate students on projects using the unique resources offered at CNF and Cornell University. Convocations are held in August to allow interns the opportunity to present their work to their peers in concise scientific presentations. Interns also must complete a written report, akin to a research paper, summarizing the findings of their research project. These reports are published and distributed to the interns and sites, the National Science Foundation (NSF) and many others.
CNF REU interns receive a $6,000 stipend, plus housing and reasonable travel expenses. Full participation in the ten-week program, convocations, program evaluations, and final reporting are all mandatory.
A complete application includes: the online application, an unofficial transcript, a personal essay and resume, and two Letters of Recommendation. Please note we have TWO deadlines! Online application materials are due Wednesday, February 8, 2023. Recommendations are due one week later, by Wednesday, February 15, 2023.
