The Nakatani Foundation is excited to announce the 8 participants in the 2016 Nakatani RIES Fellowship for Japanese students. These students represent seven different universities and colleges throughout Japan and a range of science & engineering disciplines. They will travel to Rice University this August to participate in a seven-week program designed to enable students to gain real world experience with science & engineering research, provide an introduction to U.S. higher education and provide opportunities for cultural engagement and collaboration with U.S. students. The program will serve as a catalyst for Japanese students interested in S&E study and research and engagement with the U.S. through international research collaborations.
We look forward to working with these students this summer. Congratulations to you all!
