The deadline to apply for the 2020 undergraduate student research summer internship program has passed. The application process for the 2021 undergraduate student research summer internship program will begin in December.
For the 2021 summer research internship program, undergraduate college students must have completed at least one year of higher education (equivalent to 24 credit hours) by May 2021, be enrolled in a science-related degree program, and maintain a minimum of a 3.0 GPA. Students who have graduated with a Bachelor’s degree before the start date of the summer internship program (May 10, 2021) are ineligible. If you are currently enrolled as a high school student or in a Master’s degree program, you are ineligible to participate in the undergraduate research summer internship program.
International students are eligible to apply if they meet the requirements for the program and are legally permitted to work and earn income in the United States. The Institute typically will not sponsor visas for summer-only employment.
