Description:
The University of Colorado invites undergraduates to apply for a summer Research Experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will work with scientists at the University of Colorado's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) or at the National Center for Atmospheric Research's (NCAR) High Altitude Observatory (HAO), NOAA's Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), North West Research Associates (NWRA), or Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA) on projects spanning the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun-Earth system.

The program begins with a summer school in solar and space physics and continues with seminars and discussions while you work at one of the participating laboratories, providing peer-to-peer collaboration opportunities. At the end of the summer, you will present your research findings.

Students receive $500/week, a meal allowance, a travel stipend, bus pass, and apartment-styled dorm lodging.
