Internships for Community College Students

The National Science Foundation (NSF), National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES) provides policy makers and the public high-quality information on the science and engineering enterprise.

This internship is for participants in a wide variety of fields including, but not limited to: Business Management, Communications and Graphic Design, Computer Sciences, Economics, Marketing, Mathematics and Statistics, and Survey Methodology.

Are you studying to be an engineer? Planning to go to medical school? We need you on Capitol Hill! Many STEM majors don’t see the connection between their field and public policy, but if Congress is going to keep pace with technology and science, we will need more technical experts to lead the way. Use your expertise to unlock a new career path in public policy through CHCI’s Public Policy and Graduate Fellowship Programs!

Penn State is seeking talented applicants for its Drawdown Scholars program taking place this summer from June 2 – Aug. 6, 2021 on the Penn State University Park campus.*

Commonly seen as the most comprehensive plan ever proposed to reverse global warming, the Drawdown missioseeks to pursue a practical, solutions-oriented path ahead for action on climate change. The Penn State Drawdown Scholars program supports that mission by training students in:

  • Technical, ecological, and social solutions for climate mitigation
  • Climate communication
  • Environmental law and policy
  • Leadership and professional development
  • Team-based project development
  • Global engagement

The Space Sciences Laboratory at the University of California,
Berkeley, is inviting applicants to the summer 2021 Advancing Space
Sciences through Undergraduate Research Experience (ASSURE) internship
program. Pending funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF),
the program will run for ten weeks from Jun 06 - Aug 13, 2021. The
ASSURE program provides research opportunities in the space sciences
and engineering for undergraduates from community colleges and other
institutions with limited on-campus research

The Ohio State University Department of Astronomy is collecting information on internship, fellowship, and research opportunities that are open to international students. We are interested in compiling information on programs in astronomy, physics, aerospace engineering, or related space science fields. Below please list the names and links of programs you know of that meet this description. All programs listed below must be open to non-US citizens. Thank you for your help in compiling this resource document! Please feel free to share with your colleagues and networks.

The ACCESS Summer Research Institute is an intensive eight-week introduction to research methods and tools with an emphasis on biomedical sciences. Selected student participants work under a UCSC faculty mentor on a project that focuses on current research in an area of interest indicated by the student. Interns work with state-of-the-art laboratory instruments, meet professionals in the biomedical field and experience the academic research environment.

This Community College Program promotes and nurtures science literacy, aptitude, and interest by providing talented and motivated community college URM students exposure to science in an exciting, committed, supportive environment through mentorship and scholarly pursuit.

The core purpose for the MANO Project (My Access to Network Opportunities) is to connect, build and develop young leaders of color who share a passion for serving and strengthening their communities. We want to help build leadership capacity among Latino communities and the nation as a whole.

The undergraduate and graduate internship programs provide more than 350 students and professors from universities around the country each year the opportunity for an authentic research experience. Interns will have access to the Lab’s facilities and leading scientists in their fields to take on scientific challenges and gain experience working in the science, technology, engineering, and mathematics fields.

CCI program interns are provided the opportunity to work under the guidance of scientific and engineering staff on projects that are relevant to the DOE's mission of ensuring America’s security and prosperity by addressing its energy, environmental and nuclear challenges through transformative science and technology solutions that includes:

  • A 10 week internship during the spring, summer and fall semesters

  • Participation in cutting-edge scientific research programs

  • A chance to present research results verbally and/or in writing

  • Collaborations that may result in a contribution to a scientific journal

  • A weekly stipend of $600

  • Housing, on-site transportation and one round trip visit to student listed permanent address for those living outside a 50-mile radius from the lab 


The Bootcamps are part of the French Embassy's mission to lower the barriers to studying abroad for underrepresented and underserved students. We designed our programs to be accessible both in terms of cost and academic requirements. Students from all disciplines are welcome and no prior knowledge of French is needed. Students can expect:

  • High-quality academic programs offered by top French institutions

  • A multi-disciplinary and project-based learning experience

  • Logistical and administrative support

  • An all-inclusive package

  • A safe learning experience, in full compliance with current public health recommendations

Program Fees

The program fees for one Bootcamp are $2400 + airfare. The fees include tuition, housing, meals, pick up at the airport, and local transportation. The French Embassy offers scholarships to most students to lower the final participation cost to $1000 + airfare. We strongly encourage you to find ways to further diminish the cost for your students.

Students submitting an application for the Bootcamps will automatically be considered for the scholarship.


ands-on summer research for undergraduates. The NHERI REU Summer Program provides research opportunities at the ten NHERI multi-hazard engineering and interdisciplinary research sites during a 10-week summer research program. The NHERI REU program is dedicated to helping undergraduate college students experience multi-hazard engineering as well as reconnaissance, cyberinfrastructure, data management, and simulation research. Hands-on, research-based projects introduce participants to a network of engineers, and students who work toward mitigating natural hazards and understanding the impact of natural hazards on society.

U.S. citizens and permanent residents who are enrolled undergraduate students may apply for the summer program.
