The ZEUS and Plasma Physics (ZaPP) Summer Undergraduate Research Program is designed for undergraduate students seeking a research experience focused on plasma physics outside their home institution.
2024 Summer Internship Dates: May 27 – August 2, 2024
During a summer at the University of Michigan, students will conduct an intensive research project in a MIPSE and/or ZEUS affiliated lab and immerse themselves in a specific research project under the direct supervision of faculty and members of the host laboratory. Throughout the summer, all students will engage in a series of academic, professional, and personal development seminars. At the end of the 10-week project, students participate in a research symposium, as well as create and present a poster highlighting the research conducted during the summer.
Eligible Applicants Must:
- Be full-time college student at a U.S. college or university
- Have completed at least two semesters
- Have a minimum GPA of 3.0
- Devote 10 consecutive weeks to full-time laboratory research
Participants receive a stipend of $6500 for the summer plus room and board (with a roommate) in one of our residence halls. Participants will also receive reimbursement for eligible travel expenses (up to $500) for travel to and from Ann Arbor.
Summer 2024 applications will open on December 1, 2023
Application deadline: Friday, February 2, 2024
We actively welcome and hold the majority of our spots for students from undergraduate-oriented and community college settings where graduate level research experiences do not exist, and for students from other under-resourced settings.
