Howard University, Washington, DC
CEINT Research Site: Lowry Lab- CMU
As a rising graduating senior, I am in the process of researching institutions that appeal to my interest in an advanced degree in environmental nanotechnology as it relates to water quality issues. Institutions such as Carnegie Mellon, Duke University and Howard University provide me with options to study and conduct independent research. This program will allow me to visit, interact and become acquainted with these campuses and their culture. In addition I will be able to interact with professors on site that could provide insight on nanotechnology research and graduate programs available. I see the Research for Undergraduate Fellows under the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT) as a two-way street. Not only will this program shape me into becoming a more competitive undergraduate researcher and potential graduate student, but each institution has the chance to benefit from the completed research, creativity and possibility to recruit me a as potential engineering minority graduate student for their university. I am excited about the Research for Undergraduate Fellows under the Center for the Environmental Implications of NanoTechnology (CEINT). This program allows me the opportunity to expand my horizons, to become familiar with the unfamiliar so that I can become the most competent and global researcher I can be!
