To be eligible, a applicant must:
- At least 16 years of age by the start of the internship
- A U.S. Citizen, hold a Green Card (Permanent Resident) or an F1 visa;
- Enrolled full-time in a degree-seeking program at an accredited U.S. academic institution.
Note on high school internships: For an intern to have a productive and worthwhile experience, they are generally expected to spend 15-20 hours per week in the laboratory. Because high school students have such demanding and structured weekday schedules, it is often difficult for them to commit the time necessary for a productive internship. Thus, academic year internships for high school students are extremely rare.
Students are admitted for internships on an ongoing basis. Students interested in pursuing an academic-year internship should contact Kristen Kaus at [email protected]. Recommendation letters may also be requested. If a lab or mentor has an opening, they may contact the student directly for an interview and to discuss scheduling options.
Before requesting additional information, please determine if your question is answered on any of the information pages.
