2014 NSF EPSCoR Summer Research Internships in Renewable Energy at the University of Iowa

Iowa NSF EPSCoR is a 5-year, 20 million dollar grant that involves a partnership between Iowa State University, the University of Northern Iowa, and the University of Iowa in research about renewable energy (wind and biofuels), energy efficiency and energy policy. In addition to the research goals, the EPSCoR grant seeks to increase the number and diversity of students who choose careers in STEM (Science Technology, Engineering and Math). To that end, EPSCoR is supporting paid summer research internships for qualified students.

Internships are 8-10 weeks in length, starting in late May or early June and ending in August. The specific dates are generally flexible and can be worked out after students are accepted. Interns will receive a stipend of $400/week. Room and board will be provided if the student elects to live on campus. Full board will be provided to students living off campus. The intern will be part of a research group and will be mentored by the faculty leader and graduate students in that group.

Students will have opportunities to interact with other student interns while participating in seminars, research lab tours, field trips and social events. Student interns will be expected to do research, participate in weekly lab meetings and all other scheduled events. At the end of the program they will have the opportunity to present their research findings in a culminating poster session.

The Iowa Regents Universities are Equal Opportunity/Affirmative Action Employers that have received NSF funding to broaden the participation of women, minorities, first-generation and low-income students in STEM fields. Internships are open to all qualified students, but students in these groups are particularly encouraged to apply.  Students are encouraged to apply early since applications will be accepted and reviewed on a rolling basis until all openings are filled.

For full consideration, complete applications should be received by April 23, 2014.  Final admission decisions will be made by April 30, 2014.

Eligibility requirements:

  1. Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and at least 18 years old
  2. Must be enrolled as a full time undergraduate in an accredited institution of higher education in the spring of 2014 and registered for classes for the fall of 2014
  3. Preference will be given to students enrolled in an Iowa college/university, but open to all students.

Dine College Summer Research Enhancement Program

Diné College has developed a model program for training students in public health research. Diné College believes that Native American students are more likely to develop an interest in prevention research if those interests are nurtured in a culturally supportive atmosphere.

The intent of the research training program is twofold:

  • To provide health-related research training and research experiences to Native American students, and
  • To provide students with a firm grasp of the health and living concepts embedded in traditional Native American life, how they relate to those taught in western academia
