Summer Research Program (SRP) for undergrad summer internship at Fisk University will offer 8 undergraduate students the opportunity to conduct various types of Materials Science research. This program is designed especially for sophomores, juniors and seniors majoring in such fields as physics, chemistry, mathematics, and engineering.
During this eight–week period from June 4 through July 27, students will be mentored by the Fisk University faculty, post docs and graduate students in the following areas: Chemical Physics, Optical Materials, Materials Science and Applications, Surface Science
, and Computer Science. Students will also participate in an organized program of lectures, mini-courses, laboratory visits and a variety of recreational activities.
- This program is designed especially for freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors majoring in such fields as physics, chemistry, computer science, mathematics, and engineering.

The Fisk Experience
The SRP at Fisk is designed to help students engage in Materials Science research that have definite applications. The students will be groomed to understand various concepts about their research, and will present their research via oral presentation, poster sessions and written papers acquired throughout the eight-week program. Many of the students that have been in the Fisk University SRP have presented and won awards at various conferences over the years. The goal of Fisk University’s SRP is to encourage and prepare science majors that may be going to graduate/PhD programs.
