Academic Level:
Undergraduate Students

QEM Summer Internship Program consists of a (1) Science Policy Internship supported by the Office of Integrative Activities at the National Science Foundation (NSF); and a (2) Science Education Internship supported by the NSF Tribal College and Universities Program (TCUP). The internships are designed to enhance students’ ability to apply their knowledge to a research assignment; increase their understanding of issues in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education; and instill a sense of responsibility for assisting underserved groups.

The ten-week internship experience, will include a pre-internship, four-day, orientation and professional development session; a nine-week research-focused assignment with a mentor/advisor; and a post-internship reflection session. The Program provides opportunities for graduate and undergraduate students to interact with individuals involved in policymaking positions; increase their awareness and knowledge of issues that prevent minority communities from receiving a quality education and/or quality healthcare; conduct research to become familiar with programs and strategies being implemented to address these issues; and become aware of policies and legislation that have an impact on STEM education as well as access to healthcare.
