Engineering Research Centers (ERCs) Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REUs)

The ERCs have developed many innovative programs to leverage the strong aspects of ERC research and education not only into the engineering schools, but also out into the wider educational environment. An excellent example is the Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) program, which most ERCs offer. The purpose of the NSF-funded REU program is to involve talented undergraduates in active research projects, usually during the summer, working alongside ERC researchers and students. REU students may come from the ERC's host university or another institution.

Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Space Scholars Program

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Scholars Program offers stipend-paid summer internship opportunities to undergraduatelevel university students pursuing STEM degrees; select locations also offer internships to university students pursuing education-related degrees. The selected interns gain valuable hands-on experiences working with full-time AFRL scientists and engineers on cutting-edge research and technology and are able to contribute to unique, research-based projects. 

Depending on the location of the internship, application deadlines will vary.
