The National Science Foundation (NSF) has just announced six awards for the W.R. Wiley Environmental Molecular Sciences Laboratory (EMSL) Student Summer Research Institute. These awards provide travel and living expenses for six students from across the country to spend several weeks in Richland, Washington, conducting research at EMSL. The awards are supplements to an ongoing NSF award at the host university. The total NSF investment is $30,855, and is funded by the Division of Chemistry and the Engineering Centers and Teams Program. Both NSF and BER are excited by this opportunity to place young scientists in the premier US facility for environmental molecular science.
