2016 Summer Internship Program
The summer of 2016 will mark the seventeenth year of the high school summer internship program at the Center for Imaging Science. This unique program offers a limited number of highly qualified juniors the opportunity to work side-by-side with world class scientists on a variety of imaging-related research projects. These unpaid internships give students the chance to get valuable hands-on experience in a real laboratory setting as contributing members of a research team. The internship program also provides an opportunity for interaction with other students from surrounding school districts who have similar interests and ambitions. Professional development activities, team building exercises, and at least one field trip are additional benefits. Participation in this program is free, and upon successful completion of research students are provided a certificate of completion as well as letters of recommendation.
