At Binghamton University (State University of New York)
DUE March 1, 2014
Theme: Renewable Energy Generation and Storage
Faculty: Chemistry, Physics, Materials Science and Engineering, Electrical and Computer Engineering
Participating Research Center: Center for Autonomous Solar Power
Dates of program: June 2, 2014 to August 1, 2014 (nine weeks)
Support for REU students:
- $500 per week stipend
- Housing in dormitories provided if needed
- Travel subsidy to and from Binghamton – up to $500
- Meal allowance for the eight week period: $500
Students will work with a faculty mentor on a topic related to that faculty member’s research. Research will typically involve experimental work using the extensive facilities at Binghamton University. Students will receive additional education training in safety, research ethics, and renewable energy and storage. Group meetings and social activities will be held each week.
Binghamton’s summers are almost ideal for outdoor activities. The university is very near the Finger Lakes region and within four hours of New York City and Philadelphia. Other organized students groups will be active in the summer at Binghamton, and the REU program will coordinate its student activities with them to offer additional opportunities for all students.
