National Science Foundation Extends Funding for Nanotechnology Internship Program at UC Santa Barbara

August 9, 2011

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has committed $417,822 to continue funding UC Santa Barbara's innovative Internships in Nanosystems Science, Engineering and Technology (INSET) program.

The INSET program offers California community college students an eight-week paid summer internship that engages them in the work of leading nanotechnology scientists and scholars on the UCSB campus. The program is hosted by the California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI) through its Center for Science and Engineering Partnerships (CSEP), in collaboration with UCSB's NSF Center for Nanotechnology in Society (CNS-UCSB), the Materials Research Laboratory (MRL), and faculty from Santa Barbara City College.
