This year, the PFURO program will have ~8 participants. If this year's pilot program is successful, and assuming travel has somewhat normalized, in future years the program will expand and support in-person research opportunities by reimbursing travel to the institution and providing limited weekly housing stipends. 2021 PFURO research will be fully remote.
If you are at a university, college, or other undergraduate research institution and have a summer project in one of the following topical areas:
- Magnetic fusion energy
- Fusion materials and technology
- Discovery plasmas
- High energy-density plasma
that could benefit from a full-time (40hr/week) undergraduate student researcher during the summer, please submit this form
by May 21st.
If there are any undergraduate students, especially women and underrepresented minorities in plasma and fusion, that you believe would be interested in applying, please share this info flyer
and/or the program's website: www.pppl.gov/pfuro
This program is supported by the US DOE Office of Fusion Energy Sciences and is managed by PPPL and the US Fusion Outreach Team
