Application Deadline: February 16th, 2018
The 2018 summer research experience (REU) program in the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at The University of Akron is open to apply. Students will participate in an 11-week internship to investigate a fundamental question within the broad disciplines of polymer science and polymer engineering, including chemistry, physics, engineering, and biomaterials. These interns will take part in research and career development activities, discussions outlining their research progress, and visits to regional companies. The summer will culminate with an oral or poster presentation of each intern’s research results at the Northeast Ohio NSF-REU Undergraduate Research Conference.
The application form can be found on their website, including further details regarding their REU program.

If you are interested in studying sciences in another country then Biology 4798, Scientific Roots in the UK and EU, is for you! Students will be able to learn during the semester in Columbus about scientific breakthroughs that occurred in England and the EU, and then for spring break take a trip to visit the locations and landmarks associated with those discoveries. Each student will have research projects including the Royal Society, HMS Endeavour, Sir Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin, Kew Gardens, and Cambridge University. There will be a final project where students will get to report and present their findings.
Locations visited over Spring break: London, Cambridge, Lyme Regis, Paris
This is a great opportunity to get started in study abroad, if that is in your plans for the future. Any opportunity to study abroad is an opportunity to learn more and be enriched by other cultures. You will get the opportunity to visit both London, England and for the first time Paris, France as well!
IF enough students enroll this course will be offered in the spring.
While in the past this course has focused on Biology, it has been modified to include both Chemistry and Physics.

Have you participated in this study abroad trip before? We’d love to hear about it! Share your study abroad experience in the “Submit a Feature” option in the sidebar so we can feature it on this blog.
Studying abroad is a valuable and exciting part of an undergraduate experience. When pursuing any study abroad opportunity, be sure to check in with an advisor to address any academic or financial implications of a semester abroad. Bon voyage!
The application deadline for this opportunity is March 15, 2016.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is offering a summer research program through the Materials Research Science and Engineering Center P-SPINS (Polarization and Spin Phenomena in Nanoferroic Structures).
Students, up to two per team, may explore physics, chemistry, and materials science with a college professor.
Research can continue during the academic year, and will be beneficial to both UNL and Ohio State.
Professorial members will receive a stipend and students will receive a weekly salary plus free room and board for up to 10 weeks.

All undergraduate students with research interests in all areas of physical sciences, with a focus on physics, materials science, nanoscience, optics, photonics, astronomy, physical chemistry, and applied physics and engineering are invited to attend “Sci Derby: Ultrasmall vs. Ultrafast,” the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physical Sciences (WoPhyS ’15).
WoPhyS ’15 will be held Thursday, October 15 – Saturday, October 17, 2015 on the campus of the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
Participants will have the opportunity to:
- Present research accomplishments to peers and the academic community
- Attend scientific plenary talks given by invited scientists
- Participate in graduate school preparation workshops
- Interact with natural science students and faculty from other universities
Tour facilities and labs, including the Nebraska Center for Materials and Nanoscience
Registration for WoPhyS ’15 is available online as well as details about the location and accommodations. There is no registration fee and all local costs are covered. Travel scholarships are available for undergraduates who present a talk or poster.
