Thank you to the 2013 TN-SCORE Summer REU applicants! We are currently in the process of awarding REU’s.
See the 2013 REU poster here.
About the REU Program:
TN-SCORE (Tennessee Solar Conversion using Outreach, Research, and Education) is excited to offer summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU’s). TN-SCORE is an alternative energy research grant involving nine universities across Tennessee. Funding comes from the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Experimental Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR) program. There are three research areas within TN-SCORE:
Thrust 1 Advanced Solar Conversion and Innovation
Thrust 2 Components and Devices for Energy Storage and Conversion
Thrust 3 Nanostructures for Enhancing Energy Efficiency
During the summer, there are competitive opportunities for undergraduates to work in research groups. The summer research experience is an 8-10 week program. Students will receive a $4000 stipend, housing, and supplies. Depending on the host institution, the stipend may differ and food may be included. In 2013, the host universities are the University of Tennessee and Vanderbilt University. Funding is provided by NSF EPS-1004083.
Start dates for the program are tentatively set for late May-early June but are determined by the availability of the dormitories and may vary by campus.
Student Application Requirements

-Preference in applicant selection will be given to students who are underrepresented in STEM, are Tennessee residents, and those who have career and educational goals that involve sustainable energy.
Requirements of Participation
In addition to performing research on the project, all award recipients are required to:
-Present their research at the annual TN-SCORE Conference and other events as determined by the TN-SCORE staff.
