NDnano Undergraduate Research Fellowships (NURF)
The NDnano Center will be awarding several summer undergraduate* research fellowships. The fellowships offer motivated undergraduates the opportunity to learn more about a specific area of research, gain valuable skills, and be part of a cutting-edge, nano-related research project.
Each NURF position is full time (40 hours/week**) and provides a total stipend of $5,250 over a 10-week period. Students awarded a fellowship are responsible for securing their own transportation to the University, housing and food for the summer.
Fellowship recipients will be part of Notre Dame's summer research community and have the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities. At the conclusion of their research, each NURF recipient is required to prepare a one-page summary of their project accomplishments and will be invited to present their research findings as a poster at the Summer Undergraduate Research Symposium.
*For purposes of the NURF program, undergraduates are students who will not yet have completed their undergraduate studies at the start of their summer fellowship.
** The University allows students to work a maximum of 40 hours/week during the summer months (all campus positions combined).
