Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program at Penn State

On behalf of Dr. Karen Thole, Head of the Department of Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering, and Dr. Arthur Motta, Chair of Nuclear Engineering, I am pleased to announce that we are accepting applications for an outstanding undergraduate summer research program in the nuclear field at Penn State—the Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program:

Made possible through a gift from Toshiba-Westinghouse, the Toshiba-Westinghouse Undergraduate Fellows Program is a 10-week paid summer program that provides an unparalleled opportunity for undergraduates to obtain hands-on research experience and professional development in the nuclear field at Penn State.  Participants will work closely with a faculty mentor on a state-of-the-art nuclear research project, and will have terrific opportunities to network with industry representatives and participate in site visits to locations such as Three Mile Island.

The program runs from  May 30—August 4, 2016. Fellows will receive a $6000 stipend as well as on-campus housing.  We will accept applications via our website until January 31, 2016. Applicants must have completed their sophomore year by the start of summer 2015 and have a minimum GPA of 3.0.
