Internships/ Research

2011 NSF - Science & Technology Center Undergraduate Internships

The NSF-STCs offer paid summer internships at most of our seventeen centers, located at prestigious universities around the United States. These summer internships provide undergraduates an opportunity to conduct research in a graduate school-setting in the fields including engineering. These internships are fully funded and are an excellent way to gain a competitive edge toward graduate school. The Centers are currently accepting applications for the 2011 Summer Programs. Deadlines are generally in the early spring. For more information visit: If you have questions, contact recruiting manager, Wesley Uehara, at:
