  3. Paid Summer Research Internship Opportunity – SOARS Program - by NaepcA1 (Posted Wed, 20 Dec 2017 13:29:15 GMT)
    Paid Summer Research Internship Opportunity – SOARS Program.
    "SOARS is an undergraduate to graduate research internship program for students interested in the atmospheric and related sciences, based at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Boulder, Colorado). It is dedicated to broadening participation in the atmospheric and related sciences and is built around genuine research experiences, mentoring by top scientists and engineers, and a supportive learning community. In addition to the summer internship, SOARS includes year-round support, funding to attend conferences and last-dollar tuition scholarships. Successful protégés are eligible to participate in the program for up to four years.
    Students from many disciplines, including atmospheric sciences, meteorology, geography, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, geosciences, computing, and the social sciences are invited to apply their expertise to understanding the Earth’s Atmosphere and to use that understanding to improve life on Earth. In particular, SOARS encourages applications from individuals who are members of a group that is historically under-represented in the atmospheric and related sciences, including students who are Black or African American, American Indian or Alaska Native, and Hispanic or Latino, female, first generation college students, veterans and students with disabilities. SOARS welcomes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender students; students who have experienced, and worked to overcome, educational or economic disadvantage and/or have personal or family circumstances that may complicate their continued progress in research careers.
    Benefits in the summer include a competitive wage, housing, and travel to / from Boulder; as well as funding for conferences, undergraduate and graduate education throughout the year. Application deadline: Feb 1, 2018. For more information and to apply, please see http://www.soars.ucar.edu.
