The program is open to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors only. The application deadline is Wednesday, March 31, 2021. Please note that all application materials must be included for a student to be considered for an internship. Students will be notified at the beginning of May.

This program brings science and engineering students on board for a 10-week summer internship and pays students a stipend. Number of interns varies each year dependent on ONR funding.
