Internship Identification Workshop
All science majors and scholars are invited to attend the Internship Identification Workshop on Thursday, November 3, at 7:00 p.m. in SC 336.

Beta Beta Beta Mentoring Program
Beta Beta Beta (BBB) has started a mentoring program within the Science Division. The purpose of the program is to pair underclassmen with upperclassmen in the same field to aid the underclassmen with advice on graduate schools, scheduling, internships, and other issues. This will help reduce the frustration of figuring everything out alone. Once mentors have been established, a group meeting will be held which will include the underclassmen who want to benefit from this program. Pizza and free shirts will be provided at this meeting. BBB will have accounts at the BOC and at the Jitterbug so that your coffee/drinks will be paid for if you and your mentor/mentoree decide you want to meet at either of these locations.
If you are interested in becoming a mentor or mentoree, please contact April Hung at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Undergraduate Internship Opportunity at Howard Hughes Medical Institute:
Janelia Farm Research Campus
Our program gives undergarudates an opportunity to spend 10 weeks during the summer doing research as an intern in the lab of a mentor at Janelia Farm Research Campus. The scholars are encouraged to attend weekly seminars and other events at Janelia. At the end of the session, each scholar will present their work at a symposium.
We want to identify some of the very best future scientists, engineers, and mathematicians interested in our areas of research at an early career stage. We expect this to enrich the students' intellectual development and to benefit research at Janelia.
Any matriculated undergraduate may apply.
Dates: June 8 - August 14, 2009
Students are required to spend a full 10 weeks at Janelia, but we can be flexible on the specific start and end dates to accommodate different universities' academic calendars. We provide accommodations in our housing village. There is also an allowance of $4,500 for the 10-week period. The program also supports the most economical travel to and from Janelia.
Students must apply via our web-based application system. Candidates must supply academic data, resumes, and name two individuals to supply letters of reference. We also ask candidates to specify the lab head they want to do research with at Janeia and propose a project. (For more information on the labs to choose from please see their web pages at www.hhmi.org/janelia/tabs.html). We will use these short research proposals as our main tool to decide between candidates.
