Internship Program

intern-collage-summer2013Deep-C's internship program carefully matches 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 offers 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 vary in focus and duration (anywhere from a week to a semester) based upon the needs of participating host scientists. Individual internships may be open to high school seniors (age 18+), undergraduate students, graduate students, and/or teachers.

Interns receive a stipend from the Deep-C outreach budget based on intern education level and the total number of hours of the internship. Interns are responsible for all other expenses, including housing, travel, and food.

To apply, please review the current opportunities listed below and complete the appropriate application form as soon as possible.  All internships require a minimum 3.0 GPA; however, please check the individual listings for additional requirements. Positions will be filled on a rolling basis. Individuals who have previously received funding through the Deep-C Consortium are inelligble for internships.

Please email internship coordinator Brittany Pace  ( This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ) if you have any questions.
