For the 2019 summer research internship program, undergraduate college students must have completed at least one year of higher education (equivalent to 24 credit hours) by May 13, 2019, 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 13, 2019) 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.
