The Kansas State University Center for Sustainable Energy seeks applications for its summer 2015 REU program in sustainable bioenergy funded by the National Science Foundation. Accepted students will be paid $4,500.00 for the 10 week program, room and board provided, and travel to and from Manhattan, KS (up to $400.00). Total value of this program is $7,600.00 per student.

Eligibility: We accept students from all science, agricultural, and engineering majors and class years. Applicants must be American citizens or permanent residents. First-generation college students, members of ethnic minority groups, females in STEM disciplines, and other under-represented groups are especially encouraged to apply. No previous laboratory or research experience is required.

Program Overview: The research you will receive in this program under the guidance of faculty mentors will advance your state of knowledge in sustainable energy. You will participate in “hands-on” experiences with processing agricultural biomass, experiencing the physical environment of industrial-scale biomass processing with all its limitations and opportunities. Students will also meet people that actually perform the work to produce renewable energy in the communities where they live.
