Hi there, fellow scientists! We are excited to host the first international Vermont-Japan research experience program for materials scientists funded by the National Science Foundation.

Focused on organic semiconductors and soft matter electronics, the program offers US students a chance to interact with world-renown scientists from Yamagata University, the birthplace of the white light organic LED.

Located in Yonezawa, the birthplace of the famous rayon and the Teijin company (1905), Yamagata University carries on a glorious tradition of excellence in polymer science and engineering.

Follow our students as they navigate the cultural and professional experiences alongside their Japanese mentors and fellow students.
