This has resulted in actively collaborative relationships with over 100 leading universities worldwide.

The GRO Program represents an opportunity for SAMSUNG and universities to build a mutually beneficial research relationship and we look forward to your participation. Selected GRO applicants will receive financial support for their proposed project, up to USD $100,000 per year.
