Xavier University of Louisiana and New York University have received a $3 million grant from the National Science Foundation to bolster diversity among materials scientists through collaborative research and curriculum development.
MRSEC programs provide transformative opportunities for students and faculty at minority-serving institutions to participate in leading-edge materials science and engineering research. But in order to encourage more underrepresented minority researchers to take advantage of these opportunities, we need to cultivate personal connections with those at
The National Science Foundation (NSF) announces 14 Materials Research Science and Engineering Centers (MRSECs) awarded as a result of the 2008 MRSEC competition (solicitation NSF 07-563).
A team of Penn State researchers has shown for the first time that the entire class of "non-magnetic" materials, such as those used in some computer components, could have considerably more uses than scientists had thought.
An Assessment of the Impact of the NSF's Materials Research Science & Engineering Centers Program was carried out by an independent NRC committee over a 2-year period.
The purpose of this study was to:
