Monell Center Science Apprenticeship Program
The 7-week internship is offered during the summer and runs from June to August. Interns work full-time at 35 hours per week, with pay. Housing and meals are not included, but all students living outside commuting distance will be connected to a host family and will have a safe place to stay during the internship.
The internship is highly competitive, placing about 10 percent of students who apply. Each year, the program accepts 18-24 students as summer interns. Students of all genders, race, and ethnicity may apply. The program is designed to promote diversity in the sciences, so students from underrepresented groups will be given preference.
