Research & Internship Opportunities
The School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences is a proud participant in the Leadership Alliance Summer Research-Early Identification Program (SR-EIP). This program enables undergraduates from around the country to work on a research project under the supervision of a Stanford faculty for eight weeks in the summer. To apply to the SR-EIP, please visit the Leadership Alliance website at http://www.theleadershipalliance.org. Then click “summer programs”. The deadline for summer research is in February of each year.
Geophysics is a partner in the Stanford Earth Summer Undergraduate Research Program and invites undergraduates at all levels and in all majors to apply to work on research projects with any faculty member in Geophysics. Students who are accepted will receive a full-time stipend to conduct research over the summer. A few students can also be funded for research in academic quarters.
Further opportunities for grants and information are available at: Undergraduate Research Programs
