Scholarships and Nanofabrication Experience: Successful Transitions from Community College to Graduate School
This program presents an opportunity to community college transfer students interested in the filed of nanotechnology to continue their education at Binghamton with the assistance of a tuition scholarship. With an emphasis on "learning by doing," the program will begin with a cohort building pre-junior year nanofabrication boot camp. Throughout junior and senior year, research projects with a chosen advisor in various departments of the University will lead to original research and culminate in a paper and presentation. During the summer, students will have the opportunity to work at Camp Nano, a nanotechnology outreach program geared towards secondary school students. The end goal of the program is to provide students with the foundation in nanotechnology to enable a successful transition to industry or postgraduate studies at Binghamton or elsewhere.
