The program is a year-round educational program that provides students with relevant research experience while they are pursuing an undergraduate degree. This educational program is designed to complement the students' education with work experience related to their chosen field of study. There are appointments in both the technical and administrative fields.
SOARS encourages applications from individuals who are members of a group that is historically under-represented in the atmospheric and related sciences, including students who are Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Hispanic or Latino, female, first generation college students, and students with disabilities. SOARS welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students; students who have experienced, and worked to overcome, educational or economic disadvantage and/or have personal or family circumstances that may complicate their continued progress in research careers.
A successful candidate should: have completed the equivalent of two years of college; have at least one semester of undergraduate studies remaining after the initial summer program; have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or higher; have a major in atmospheric science or a related field such as the geosciences, biology, chemistry, computer science, earth science, engineering, environmental science, mathematics, meteorology, oceanography, physics, or social science; plan to pursue a career in atmospheric or a related science; have U.S.-citizen or permanent-resident status; and be comfortable with all internship requirements.

MAES seeks to assist Hispanic students in completing their higher education goals. Scholarships are available on a competitive basis to student members in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
The Critical Language Scholarship (CLS) program offers fully-funded summer language (and cultural immersion) institutes for university students (sponsored by the Department of State). CLS is part of a U.S. government effort to expand the number of Americans studying and mastering critical foreign languages. Students of diverse disciplines and majors are encouraged to apply.
Argonne National Laboratory is seeking highly motivated and energetic undergraduate students for the 2015 summer internship and part-time work experience programs! Over the years, Argonne has supported thousands of students in their explorations of STEM research careers; provided access to cutting-edge research facilities and fostered relationships with world-class scientists all within 30 miles of the third largest city in the country. We are looking to grow our summer 2015 cohort of students.
The University of Colorado invites undergraduates to apply for a summer Research Experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will work with scientists at the University of Colorado’s Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) or at the National Center for Atmospheric Research’s (NCAR) High Altitude Observatory (HAO), NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), North West Research Associates (NWRA), Atmospheric and Environmental Research (AER) or Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA) on projects spanning the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun-Earth system.
The program begins with a summer school in solar and space physics and continues with seminars and discussions while you work at one of the participating laboratories, providing peer collaboration opportunities. At the end of the summer, you will present your research findings.
