This program helped undergraduates experience cutting-edge nanoscale research at UVA. Students and Faculty members submitted a joint proposal to support their project. Each selected summer research proposal received up to $3,000. Under faculty advisory, students immersed themselves in the laboratory environment for the summer culminating in a short summary of their work and findings. Most students reported that their summer research influenced their capstone projects and, for several students, will likely influence their graduate work as well.
