2021 Nebraska Summer Research Program

This intensive summer research experience provides mentoring and research experiences while allowing scholars to preview graduate school life. Students with a strong interest in graduate programs are particularly encouraged to apply as are those from populations traditionally underrepresented in graduate education. Scholars stay in suite-style housing, enjoy an on-campus meal plan, and have travel costs covered. The program also features workshops for GRE prep, writing a personal statement, creating a research poster, and more. Additionally, scholars get a chance to visit the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo, join intramural teams, rent bikes to explore Lincoln, attend outdoor adventures, and more!

Research areas include: Agricultural Sciences, Applied Unmanned Systems, Beneficial Insects, Bioenergy Systems, Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Landscape Resilience, Lasers and Optics, Minority Health Disparities, Molecular Plant Microbe Interaction, MRSEC (Materials
Science), Plant and Microbiome, Redox Biology, Sustainability of Civil Infrastructure, Unmanned Systems, Virology.
