ENGINEERING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES
The National Science Foundation (NSF)
offers a variety of ways for U.S. undergraduate and graduate students who
are interested in science and engineering to get involved in cutting-edge
research at major universities—not garden-variety research, but research
in emerging fields of technology, in the most advanced laboratories, with
world-class investigators as your team members! In many cases, students
even receive a substantial stipend to support their work. Imagine
getting paid to do fascinating research at one of the 22 flagship Engineering
Research Centers, for example—all the way from undergraduate through to
your doctoral degree in engineering!
NSF is making these opportunities
available because the Foundation wants to improve the nation’s ability
to draw upon pools of talent existing among population groups, such as
minorities and women, who are underrepresented in today’s engineering workforce
and on engineering faculties. The opportunities are opening up.
Take advantage of them!
