Top 4 international internships this week | Georgia Tech, NASA, Brown University and French Embassy.


1. Computing Research Undergraduate Intern Summer Experience(CRUISE), Georgia Tech.
Georgia Institute of Technology, United States.
Duration: 10 weeks in summer 2015.
Stipend: Students admitted to the program will be offered a stipend for the summer that will cover the student’s housing and local expenses (food, transportation, etc.)

You should apply by December 31, 2014 for full consideration in participating in the Summer 2015 CRUISE program.

You can also visit the CRUISE’s website here.

Eligibility: All students enrolled in an undergraduate degree program in computer science or computing, engineering, or a physical science considering doctoral studies in computational science and engineering are encouraged to apply. Though intended primarily for undergraduates, students enrolled in masters degree programs may also apply. Students enrolled in other programs will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Both US and international students are encouraged to apply. You are advised to review faculty web sites to see the range of ongoing research projects in computational science and engineering at Georgia Tech.

In addition to working on specific research projects, Georgia Tech CRUISE also includes a number of social events to get to know other CRUISE students as well as students, faculty, and staff involved in the Computational Science and Engineering graduate programs at Georgia Tech. Seminars will be offered to introduce students to topics of general interest such as what is it like to be a PhD student and how best to prepare a graduate school application, in addition to technical topics. At the end of the summer a CRUISE symposium is held where students will give presentations about their research conducted during the summer in a format not unlike that used in conferences and symposiums.

More about CRUISE:
Computing Research Undergraduate Intern Summer Experience (Georgia Tech CRUISE) is a program offered at Georgia Tech to encourage students to consider doctoral studies in Computational Science and Engineering. Though intended primarily for undergraduates, students enrolled in masters degree programs may also apply. Each summer the CRUISE program hosts student interns who work with faculty in on-going research projects in Computational Science and Engineering at Georgia Tech.

2. NASA LPI Summer Intern Program in Planetary Science, NASA
Location: Lunar and Planetary Institute or NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas
Duration: 10 weeks (June 1-August 7, 2015) and the start dates for the internship are flexible. The program tries to be as accommodating as possible.
Stipend: You will receive a $5,000 stipend plus $1000 US travel stipend, or $1,500 foreign travel reimbursement for foreign interns.

The last date to apply for the 2015 program is January 9, 2015.

Eligibilty: The program is open to international undergraduates as well as students from the United States.

College undergraduates with at least 50 semester hours of credit interested in pursuing a career in the sciences are eligible. Students with majors in a physical or natural science, engineering, computer science, or mathematics have an advantage, but any eligible student may apply. The program is really geared for students finishing their sophomore (2nd) and junior (3rd) years.

Selection is based on these criteria: (1) scholarship, curriculum, and experience; (2) career objectives and scientific interest; and (3) match of interest of applicant with available research projects.

Areas of Research: Lunar Science and Exploration, Planetary, Remote Sensing and Spectroscopy, Image Processing, Planetary Geology and Surface Processes, Impact Studies, Geophysical Data Analysis and Modeling, Physics and Chemistry of Planetary Atmospheres, Meteorites and Sample Analysis, Interplanetary Dust and Presolar Grains, Mineralogy/Petrology.

The Lunar and Planetary Institute (LPI) is a scientific research institute dedicated to study of the solar system, its formation, evolution, and current state. The Institute is part of the Universities Space Research Association (USRA) and is supported by the Science Mission Directorate of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Located at 3600 Bay Area Boulevard in Houston, Texas, the LPI maintains an extensive collection of lunar and planetary data, carries out education and public outreach programs, and offers meeting coordination and publishing services.

3. The ICERM’s Undergraduate Summer Program, Brown University
Location:  Providence, Rhode Island (United States).
Duration: 8 weeks (June 15 – August 7, 2015)
Stipend: $3,000 stipend + Travel support within US + Dormitory housing + Meal plan.

Eligibility: Applicants must not yet have graduated with an undergraduate degree at the time of the program start. Funding is available for a limited number of students who are not US citizens or permanent residents.

The Institute for Computational and Experimental Research in Mathematics (ICERM), founded in 2011, is a research institute in mathematics at Brown University, funded beginning in 2010 by a grant from the National Science Foundation.

The ICERM’s Undergraduate Summer Program is designed for a select group of 14-16 undergraduate scholars. Students work in groups of two or three, supervised by faculty advisors and aided by teaching assistants. The faculty advisors present a number of interesting research topics that are centered around deep mathematical structures hidden in the everyday objects. The areas where the problems lie are dynamical systems and low-dimensional topology, but the origins of the problems themselves are mundane: how to find a gap in a fence? How complicated should be your finger movements to tie a knot? why standing waves develop in crowds? To crack the problems will require both ingenuity and computer experiments. Students form research groups to work on these problems, give talks about their findings, and write up their research into a paper at the end of the program.

4. The Charpak Scholarship Program, French Embassy.
Duration: One to four months at any French institute (January-June 2015)
Stipend: Monthly stipend of 615 Euros + Free student visa, including CEF fee waiver + Full tuition waiver at public universities (Partial tuition waivers may be granted by other institutions, according to their individual policies.) + Access to student housing + Medical insurance coverage.

The last date for applications is November 30, 2014.
