2014 Summer Undergraduate Internship Projects

For the first time, the Nebraska Center for Energy Sciences Research (NCESR) offered a summer internship opportunity in energy sciences research to undergraduate students in the amount of up to $5,000 for the summer of 2014.  Each recipient prepared a poster to describe their research.  The posters were presented during the Nebraska Summer Research Symposium on August 6, 2014 at the University of Nebraska City Campus Union.  More than 150 students participated in the event. which is sponsored by the Office of Graduate Studies
