National Science Foundation
NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU program (Research Experiences for Undergraduates). An REU site consists of a group of ten or so students who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student works on a specific research project with a faculty member and other researchers. Students receive stipends and support for housing and travel. Students can search for REU opportunities at www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/reu_search.jsp
|2016||Governor's Public Service Summer Internship Program
Every summer, the State Personnel Department administers the Governor’s Public Service Summer Internship program.

To be considered for this internship program, candidates must be currently enrolled as an undergraduate or graduate with an accredited post-secondary institution and have completed at least one (1) year of undergraduate education. The time frame for applications ranges from February through early March. To be considered, interested students must submit an online application for the specific internship(s) of choice via the state of Indiana job bank.
