Clean Energy Bridge to Research (CEBR) is a summer research program from the Clean Energy Institute (CEI) at the University of Washington (UW). The program is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF 1559787). CEBR supports a select group of undergraduates and community or tribal college students and teachers to participate in authentic research in solar materials, energy storage, and grid technologies under the mentorship of UW’s world-class faculty and grad students. CEBR builds on the success of the now completed Hooked On Photonics REU program.
