Applications are now being accepting for a 10-week summer internship program at the Texas A&M Transportation Institute (TTI). The internship is sponsored by two USDOT funded University Transportation Centers: the Advancing Transportation Leadership and Safety (ATLAS) Center, a partnership between TTI and the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute; and Safe-D, a partnership between TTI, Virginia Tech Transportation Institute and San Diego State University.

Up to ten junior-level undergraduate students will be selected to participate. The internship will include active involvement in safety-related research projects at TTI with opportunities to interact with students in other summer research programs on the Texas A&M University campus and to participate in university-wide seminars, tours, poster sessions and other events.

Each student will be paired with a research staff or faculty member to work on an independent research topic that builds on the mentor’s project.

In recent years the ATLAS Center welcomed students from the University of Michigan, Texas A&M University, Polytechnic University of Puerto Rico, and the University of Arkansas. Read about their experience on the ATLAS website.

Any academic major is welcome, past students have come from:

  • Civil Engineering
  • Industrial Engineering
  • Public Health
  • Psychology

The National Science Foundation (NSF) funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of a host institution.

Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions.

An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location. Applications to REU programs are generally due in late fall or early spring. Students must contact the individual sites for information and application materials. A searchable database of REU Sites is available:

University of Oregon (UO) Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR)

Program Description

The University of Oregon (UO) Summer Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR) provides fellowship opportunities for undergraduate students from other Universities and Colleges to participate in ongoing research in Life Sciences laboratories at UO during the Summer months. Each project is a rigorous and rich immersion in a mentored, high profile science research project with a lab mentor under the direction of a research professor. We are very interested in enhancing the creativity, diversity, and talent of the next generation of life scientists in research communities. We stress active, experiential learning, because a true understanding of scientific ideas requires immersion into the processes of discovery, and it is reflected in the ability to communicate these ideas.

SPUR training stresses active learning for interns and their mentors in experimental approaches, methodological skills, strategic design, creative and critical reasoning, and scientific communication. Professional and social interactions with active researchers at all levels helps interns boost personal confidence. In selecting summer interns, we seek talented, motivated, adventurous, and hard-working undergraduates who would benefit from what our program has to offer, and who perhaps would not otherwise have such opportunities.

2017 Program Dates: May 26, 2017 to August 4, 2017.

For more than 20 years, the Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program has provided students with fellowship opportunities to gain hands-on research experience with the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Fossil Energy. The MLEF program was created in 1995 with the goal of improving opportunities for under-represented students in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields; however, all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply.

The mission of the MLEF program is to strengthen a diverse pipeline of future STEM professionals, and this program has mentored several hundred of the best and brightest students from across the nation for future careers in STEM.

Selected candidates train under the mentorship of program officials and scientists on focused research projects, consistent with the mission of the Office of Fossil Energy. During these 10-week energy fellowships, participants receive a stipend, and some students may be eligible for housing and travel allowances for the duration of the program. They also gain insight into how DOE is working to meet the energy challenges of the future.

At the conclusion of the program, Fellows attend a “Technical Forum” where they present their research findings and tour a nearby technical site.

A career in biomedical research is not for everyone, but if you:

- Love science

- Always want to know why, not just what

- Enjoy tough problems that just don't seem to want to be solved

- Want to contribute to new medical breakthroughs

- Get a thrill out of discovery

… then a career as a Ph.D. or M.D.-Ph.D. scientist might be for you. You won't be certain, though, until you immerse yourself in a research lab, and Mayo Clinic is one of the best places for you to do that. Our application for summer 2018 will be available in September 2017.
