CIS High School Intern Program Now Accepting Applications

The 2015 application cycle for the CIS High School Summer Intern program is open through March 6.

Jan. 6, 2015

The summer of 2015 marks the sixteenth 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.

All current high school juniors* are eligible to apply. Application instructions as well as more information are available via our High School Internship webpage

*Notice regarding non-local applicants: While this internship is not limited to local high school students, it is not within the bandwidth of the program to offer any housing or housing assistance. If a non-local student wishes to apply, they must prepare appropriate living arrangements independently.
