Description: The National Undergraduate Fellowship Program in Plasma Physics and Fusion Energy Sciences provides outstanding undergraduates with  an opportunity to conduct research in the disciplines that  comprise the plasma sciences in   general  and fusion research in particular.

Only students who are matriculated at a U.S. college or university AND are a  U.S. citizen are eligible for a Fellowship.

The  program is intended primarily for students completing their junior  year majoring in physics or engineering, but highly motivated  students completing their sophomore year are encouraged to apply  as well. The nine-week long research projects are performed at one  of the many participating universities and  national laboratories throughout the country. The goal of the Program is to stimulate students' interest in the fields relevant  to fusion research while providing capable assistants for fusion research projects. In order that the students obtain a sufficient  background to begin their research projects, the nine week project is preceded by a one week introductory course at the Princeton  Plasma Physics Laboratory in the basic elements of plasma physics,  after which the students travel to the sites of their research  projects.
