Short Term Educational Experiences for Research (STEER)

Interest in environmental health and the need for increased research in this field has steadily grown during the past decade. To address this need, the University of Pennsylvania has received an NIEHS award for summer internships for selected undergraduate students (the Short Term Educational Experiences for Research or STEER grant, formally known as the Penn Undergraduate Environmental Health Scholars Program).

Monell’s Science Apprenticeship Program

The Monell Center is the world’s only scientific research institute dedicated to conducting basic research on taste, smell, and nutritional sciences. Located within Philadelphia’s University City, the Monell Center sponsors a Science Apprenticeship Program to introduce local high school and college students to scientific research. The program welcomes all student applicants and has a particular interest in training individuals from groups that are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences.

DOE Office of Science Education

Energy Research Undergraduate Laboratory Fellowships places students in paid internships in Science and Engineering at any of several Department of Energy facilities. Many of the participants in the program have decided on a career in science and engineering because of the nature of the experience. Students work with scientists or engineers on projects related to the laboratories’ research programs.
