Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Scholars Program   

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) is currently accepting applications for internship opportunities available at AFRL sites across the United States (including but not limited to: Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, New Mexico; Eglin AFB in Valparaiso, Florida; and the Air Force Maui Optical and Supercomputing Site (AMOS) in Maui, Hawaii). AFRL Scholars Program internships are competitive awards that provide AFRL-related involvement for students to gain degree-relevant, real-world experience while contributing to the operation of an AFRL site and supporting the advancement of DoD missions. Internship opportunities are primarily in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. Selected interns are paid a competitive stipend award amount based on their academic level at the beginning of the internship opportunity.

The Summer Undergraduate Research Training (SMART) Program

The Summer Undergraduate Research Training (SMART) Program was developed to provide frontier-level, biomedical summer research projects for undergraduates in a supportive environment with supplemental educational activities. The program offers: Nine paid weeks of biomedically related research in a broad range of areas Research and professional development seminars designed for undergraduates Free SMART GRE prep workshops Career development activities Designated housing near Baylor College of Medicine; A compensation package of approximately $5,000. Depending on the funding source, your compensation will be all salary or a combination of salary and allocation for housing or travel. In addition to everything you learn about science through research, daily seminars, discussion groups, and extra activities; the experience of getting to know the other participants and people here at Baylor College of Medicine is extraordinary.

We welcome students from all science and math majors, and even non-science majors with appropriate background and interest. Projects span the spectrum of biomedical science, including projects in bioengineering and computational biology. Our program has gained nationwide recognition from students, their advisers, and granting agencies as one of the most successful ever created due to our incomparable resources in the Texas Medical Center and people who truly believe in opening doors of opportunity to college students.

Sustainable Urban Water Transdisciplinary Research Program for Undergraduates

The Urban Water Innovation Network (UWIN) gives 9 students the opportunity to perform cutting edge research of immediate relevance to people in urban areas at institutions across the nation. During 9 weeks, students conduct independent research projects under the guidance of mentor scientists. To complement their mentored research, students interact in person and/or virtually, give and receive feedback and support, and participate in a rich assortment of enrichment activities, workshops and seminars in transdisciplinary research and urban water sustainability. Students with different research interests in urban water sustainability - social sciences, natural sciences, engineering - are invited to apply. Students must be citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. or its possessions. Underrepresented minorities and first generation college students are encouraged to apply.

Students in the program will receive a stipend of $4,500 plus on-campus or nearby housing. Students also will receive a travel allowance towards travel expenses associated with participating in the program, including travel to and from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO, for the kick off and wrap up meetings, and travel to their research site.
