Now in its tenth year, this program offers interdisciplinary research experience in leading laboratories to students majoring in the physical or mathematical science or engineering at colleges with limited research opportunities. The program is open only to non-Princeton students. Each student serves as a research assistant in the laboratory of a Princeton faculty member who serves as a mentor and research adviser. The program directors, in consultation with training faculty, match student interests to available projects.
