Here are some opportunities to think about for the summer and beyond. Many of these programs have deadlines in February and early March, so apply NOW!
- Student Conservation Association:
- National Park Service Urban Ecology Internships and Fellowships (Internships and fellowships are seniors only.):
- MIT (for seniors):
This is free, but transportation there and back is up to the student.
- University of Maryland – Women in Engineering
The program costs $550 plus the cost of metro there and back.
- Howard: Upward Bound Math and Science: http://www.howard.edu/schooleducation/Programs/Trio/MathSci.html
This is a free program in DC in which students work in a lab at Walter Reed. There are several levels. If you haven’t done GEMS before, apply for Level 1.
Deadline: There is no fixed deadline, but earlier is better.
