Internship Program

intern-collage-summer2013During the course of Deep-C's three-year research effort, the project offered internships. The internship program carefully matched educators and students majoring in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) fields to research opportunities proposed by Deep-C scientists at the various Deep-C educational member institutions.

The program offered participants opportunities to conduct research in various fields of science as well as gain real-world experience working with scientists on projects that support the Deep-C mission. Internships varyed in focus and duration (anywhere from a week to a semester) based upon the needs of participating host scientists. Below you will find links to some of the internships offered, along with blog posts by the participants.
