About the Program

The Bioenergy Scholars Program offered summer research work to undergraduates, who can apply to work at one of several universities in the Northeast US (including Penn State, Cornell, Rutgers, West Virginia University, SUNY ESF, and Delaware State University and others). After a one-week orientation program at Delaware State, students were brought to their host university to spend the summer working side by side with graduate students and researchers on important bioenergy topics. Students prepared a paper based on their work for presentation at the end of the summer.
