Deadline Extended for Spring 2020 Cohort

The PACK Fellowship, an international research opportunity for graduate students from any science or engineering discipline, is accepting applications until January 31, 2020.

PACK, a cooperative effort between Penn State University, The American Ceramic Society, and the University of Kiel, is a National Science Foundation-funded opportunity to conduct research at the University of Kiel in Germany.

Examples of research areas could include:

  • Functional electrical and magnetic ceramics, polymers, and metals
  • Imaging techniques including microscopy, diffraction, and spectroscopy
  • Electrical and magnetic measurements
  • Neuroscience and neuroimaging
  • Electrical and magnetic composites
  • Signal processing, low-noise circuits, or energy harvesting

The fellowship provides support for travel, lab fees, and boarding. In addition to research, selected students have the opportunity to attend relevant courses at University of Kiel, receive exposure to entrepreneurship training, and participate in professional development activities. The second cohort of six science or engineering students selected will do research at Kiel for the Spring 2020 term.
