Application Deadline: February 12, 2024
Description: The George Washington Carver Summer Research Internship Program has been impacting and engaging the minds of high school and undergraduate student program participants for over 25 years.

The program seeks to improve the research enterprise through increased diversity; champion the value of graduate education; and prepare and recruit the best and brightest for undergraduate and graduate education at ISU.  The internship program further seeks to bridge the gap between lack of access to technology/information and opportunities to engage in experiential learning in an effort to increase the participation of students of color in STEM fields. In addition to their research experience, interns participate in weekly educational seminars, and social and cultural activities.
