Summer Research Opportunities

Conducting research in the summer at a larger, research-focused institution or in a government lab is a great way to gain experience and learn about chemistry in an applied way. You will experience chemistry in a real-world setting, get hands-on time with research-grade instruments, gain the excitement of discovery, interact with faculty, staff, graduate and undergraduate students at nationally recognized research institutions, and prepare for graduate school (or try out what grad school will be like, to see if it's for you). The duration of internships varies but it is usually 10 weeks. Many of the programs are federally funded and provide coverage for living expenses and/or student stipends. Participation in these programs strengthens your application to graduate and professional school.
