Research Projects

***Disclamer: the 2016 program is contingent on obtaining funding from the NSF

* Eligibility: Strong students who are advanced Sophomores or Juniors in Chemistry;  must be U.S. citizen or permanent resident.  Most students who participate will be from underrepresented groups in science, and will be from non-PhD granting institutions.

* $5,000 Fellowship, plus airfare and on-campus housing at Chulabhorn Research Institute.

*Short course on Thai language and culture: research will be carried out using English as the primary language. A series of graduate school preparatory workshops are also included.

*Applications available online only; the link and application deadline will be reinstated once funding has been authorized.
