4E Undergraduate Research Summer Scholars Program

4E Undergraduate Research Summer Scholars Program

The 4E Undergraduate Research Summer Scholars Program was created to attract undergraduates with aptitude in the sciences and engineering to participate in research related to energy and the environment. The Summer Scholars Program is a ten-week program in which students are placed in research laboratories where they perform research supporting SUNY 4E faculty members. In 2015, 55 applications were received and eight students from six campuses were selected.
