Summer Research Opportunities for Undergraduate Students

dots

Summer internships are open to students from all colleges and universities.

We currently have two programs accepting Summer Internship applications.

1. Research Internship

This track is encouraged for undergraduate students who are in their first, second, or third year of college and are looking for an introduction to autism research. We ask interns to commit to 10 weeks of work for 20 to 30 hours per week between the end of May and the end of August.

Interns are also required to attend a weekly professional development seminar and academic journal club led by doctoral students. Interns are also asked to observe behavioral, cognitive, and electroencephalogram (EEG) testing sessions of children, adolescents, and adults with ASD.  

Please note that internships with care are unpaid and we are not able to offer housing. We encourage applicants to seek funding opportunities that may be available at their current institutions.

You can apply to our internship by completing our online application. Be sure to attach your resume to your application.

2. Intensive Research Internship

This track is encouraged for undergraduate students who have some background in research and are typically in their third or fourth year of college. We ask interns to commit to 12 weeks of work for 30 to 40 hours per week between the end of May and the end of August.
