Students planning to major in any field of science are strongly encouraged to obtain hands-on research experience. In addition to fulfilling coursework, many institutions require research experience. Research programs exist in physics, chemistry, biology, material science, non-technology, computer science, energy technologies, engineering, medical science, environmental science and more.

These programs provide excellent research opportunities and occur at world-renowned national laboratories and universities across the country. Students who are accepted into these programs gain valuable experience that helps them in their chosen science career.

The benefit of a summer research internship includes making contacts with professionals in your field, applying what you've learned in the classroom to real life, contributing to the field, learning new methodologies, working with like-minded students from all over the world, enhancing your resume, increasing your marketability to future employers, experiencing personal and professional growth and so much more!

The following is a list of internship programs:
