NSF-Funded Science & Engineering Opportunities for 2008 (GRAD STUDENTS ONLY)

Program Overview
The Central Europe Summer Research Institute (CESRI) is designed to provide U.S. graduate students in the sciences and engineering with a high-quality international summer research experience in Austria, the Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Poland or Slovakia.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the CESRI program sends enrolled U.S. graduate students in biology, chemistry, computer science, engineering, environmental science, or mathematics for 8 weeks to receive a relevant laboratory experience in Central Europe in the sciences.

In the past two years, grantees have travelled to Central Europe to work on a wide range of projects, from studying the properties of Roman concrete, studying genes that confer disease resistance and working on improved data transmission on wireless networks.

For Summer 2008, CESRI will support up to 14 qualified grantees.
