MATERIALS RESEARCH SCIENCE AND ENGINEERING CENTER
The Center supports College Faculty-Student Teams, each comprising a faculty member and an undergraduate from a four-year college, including Xavier University of Louisiana, a relationship established during prior award period through an NSF PREM award. This program reduces the barrier for students who are reluctant to venture alone to an REU program while creating a permanent faculty contact at the home undergraduate institution.
Faculty must provide a cover letter, a statement of research and career interests, the MRSEC research group of interest, a one-page description of the research project (identical to the student's version), a current Curriculum Vitae, and a candid evaluation of the accompanying student. The accompanying student must be identified in the cover letter.
