Outreach / Education Recognition
Educational Outreach Recognition
Many faculty, postdocs, graduate and undergraduate students contribute to the effectiveness and success of NCMN’s educational outreach efforts. The NCMN Ambassador Award is given for special recognition of a few outstanding faculty who have consistently given countless hours towards furthering education in the area of materials and nanoscience through outreach events and programs. Information on previous recognition awards is available on the recognition archive page. We want to recognize their contributions and say thank you! For more information about nanoscience outreach events please visit: http://ncmn.unl.edu/outreach-education.
NCMN Graduate Research Fellows
The annual fellowships honor a select group of doctoral graduate students on the basis of high research and scholastic performance. Fellows receive a stipend that supports students who are completing their doctoral dissertations and final year of studies. Information on previous fellows is available on the fellowship archive page.
