Research Experience for Undergraduates Program (RTNN REU+)

The inaugural summer of our Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU+) program was in 2016. Students will participate in nanotechnology-related research at one of the RTNN partner universities with follow-on at students’ home institutions in the year following the summer program. Visit our REU page for more information and applications.


Free Facility Access

RTNN Kickstarter Program

In order to further our mission to serve as a hub of cutting-edge nanotechnology innovation and education, the RTNN has established a means to allow members of the nanotechnology and greater scientific communities, who would otherwise not have the financial resources, to use RTNN facilities. Visit our Kickstarter page for more information and an application form. Proposals are accepted on a rolling basis with two priority deadlines per year.
