Women in Nanotechnology Seminar

All students are invited to meet prominent women in nanotechnology to hear about their history, exciting research, and how they chose their successful career paths. This seminar will provide valuable information to all students, particularly female students, who may be interested in graduate work and careers in S&T but do not know what avenues are open to them.

Information Session on How to Prepare a Successful Application 

An information session on the WIN Nanofellowship Award will be held immediately after, designed to help with questions about the application procedure and other details related to the scholarship.
