2. Overseas Research Fellowship

Related to the Overseas Research Fellowship, the Physics Department organized the Physics Summer Undergraduate Overseas Research Program. In that program, participants will be assigned to work on a frontier science research project with a professor or scientist overseas upon mutual agreement based on their interested research field as indicated in their applications. Previously, successful candidates had been placed in prestigious institutions such as Cambridge, CERN, Princeton and Stanford. Accepted participants for this Program are also required to apply for the Overseas Research Fellowship of the Faculty of Science.
