ENGINEERING RESEARCH OPPORTUNITIES FOR STUDENTS

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!
