2016 Nuclear Chemistry Summer Schools for Undergraduates

The Department of Energy is providing funding for the 2016 Nuclear Chemistry Summer Schools.

Academic programs are invited to identify outstanding undergraduates who might be interested in, and qualified for, the American Chemical Society (ACS)-sponsored Nuclear and Radiochemistry Summer School Program. We will need your help as there is a significantly compressed recruiting period compared to previous years.

The program organizers are interested in attracting curious and highly motivated students with strong science backgrounds. If selected, these students receive an all-expense-paid opportunity to complete a six-week summer course in nuclear and radiochemistry in either California or New York. They also earn hours (tuition paid) of undergraduate chemistry credit through either San Jose State University or the State University of New York-Stony Brook. Selected students also receive a stipend of $4,000.

The application procedure, background information, and an online application form can be found on the Chemistry page of the University of Missouri website.

The deadline for applications is 1 February 2016. Please distribute this announcement to undergraduate students and encourage them to consider this unique opportunity! If you have any questions about this program, contact J. David Robertson, phone: 573-882-5346.
