Announcing the 2016 Nakatani RIES U.S. Fellows

The Nakatani Foundation is excited to announce the 14 participants in the 2016 Nakatani RIES Fellowship for U.S. students.  These students represent eleven different universities and colleges throughout the U.S. and a range of science & engineering disciplines. They will travel to Japan this May to participate in a three-week language and culture orientation program in Tokyo followed by a nine-week science & engineering research experience in one of our 14 host labs throughout Japan.

We look forward to working with these students over the course of the summer. Congratulations to you all!
