- Most interns will receive a stipend of $10/hour for 40 hours/week. Room and board may be provided if the student elects to stay on campus for internships at ISU or the U of I. See Internship Descriptions for details.
- The intern will be part of a research group and will be mentored by the faculty leader and graduate students in that group. Students will have opportunities to interact with other student interns while participating in seminars, research lab tours, field trips, and social events.
- Student interns will be expected to do research, participate in weekly lab meetings and all other scheduled events.
- At the end of the program interns will have the opportunity to present their research findings in a culminating poster session.
Students are encouraged to apply early since applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until all the openings are filled. For full consideration, applications should be received by March 30. Final admission decisions will be made by April 15.
Iowa NSF EPSCoR (http://iowaepscor.org) is a 5-year, 20 million dollar grant that involves a partnership between ISU, UNI and the University of Iowa in research about renewable energy (wind and biofuels), energy efficiency and energy policy. In addition to the research goals, the EPSCoR grant seeks to increase the number and diversity of students who choose careers in STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math). To that end, EPSCoR is supporting paid summer research internships for qualified students.
The Iowa Regents Universities are Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers that have received NSF funding to broaden the participation of women, minorities, first-generation, and low-income students in STEM fields. Internships are open to all qualified students, but students in these groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
