Please read the instructions before beginning.

Application Guidelines
  • Statement of Purpose – Be sure to write a good essay. It is important input for mentors who evaluate your application.
  • Letters of Reference – Applicants are responsible for asking and following up with references to make sure that they send in their letters on time. The system will generate an automated reference request upon your request, but does not automatically send follow up requests.
  • Would you have a better chance of getting an internship if you apply to ALL opportunities? This is highly discouraged. It is unlikely that you are a good fit to all the projects. It shows that you have not thought about your goal and interests. This will actually diminish your chance of being selected.
What happens after the application deadline? After the deadline
  • Mentors will enter the website to review applicants who have applied to their projects.
