IonE Visiting Scholars

The Visiting Scholars program aims to extend the reach of IonE and its researchers and to welcome external visitors who can enrich our community of environmental research and education. IonE Visiting Scholars provide a link between one or more external institutions—including academia, the government, not-for-profit institutions, and corporations—and the University of Minnesota.

Applications are invited from individuals from non-University of Minnesota organizations. Learn more & apply. Rolling deadline.
