2] For all undergraduates pursuing majors in Science, Technology, Education and Math
DEPT OF ENERGY SCIENCE UNDERGRADUATE LABORATORY INTERNSHIPS (SULI): Deadline is January 10, 2012
The Science Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program encourages undergraduate students to pursue science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers by providing research experiences at the Department of Energy (DOE) National Laboratories. Selected students participate as interns appointed at one of 17 DOE National Laboratories. They perform research, under the guidance of laboratory staff scientists or engineers, on projects related to ongoing programs. http://science.energy.gov/wdts/suli/
NASA ONE-STOP SHOPPING INITIATIVE (OSSI):
A website that features opportunities for internships, fellowships and other opportunities for students at all NASA laboratories. http://intern.nasa.gov/
NSF RESEARCH EXPERIENCES FOR UNDERGRADUATES (REU) /Applications and deadlines are set by the host institution:
NSF funds a large number of research opportunities for undergraduate students through its REU Sites program. An REU Site consists of a group of ten or so undergraduates who work in the research programs of the host institution. Each student is associated with a specific research project, where he/she works closely with the faculty and other researchers. Students are granted stipends and, in many cases, assistance with housing and travel. Undergraduate students supported with NSF funds must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its possessions. An REU Site may be at either a US or foreign location. http://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/
2] For women undergraduates interested in science and engineering:
APS/IBM Research Internships for Undergraduate Women: Deadline is February 1, 2012
APS and IBM co-sponsor a research internship program for undergraduate women. The goal is to encourage women students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering. The internships are salaried positions typically 10 weeks long at one of three IBM research locations (San Jose, CA, Austin, TX, or Yorktown Heights, NY), and give the opportunity to work closely with an IBM mentor.

3] For undergraduates majoring in biology, biochemistry or chemistry:
Sanford Program for Undergraduate Research (SPUR):
SPUR is a ten week, paid summer internship program aimed towards encouraging biology, biochemistry, and chemistry majors, especially those
from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, to consider careers in laboratory research. More information about the program, a list of SPUR
mentors and their projects, and application instructions can be found at: <http://www.sanfordresearch.org/Careers/SanfordProgramforUndergraduateResehttps://legacy.bhsu.edu/owa/redir.aspx?C=f67a7c772c5c45ac90753d569d84dcc5&URL=http%3a%2f%2fwww.sanfordresearch.org%2fCareers%2fSanfordProgramforUndergraduateRese
