Off Campus Summer Research Opportunity in the Natural Sciences

The following is a listing of off-campus summer undergraduate research opportunities, typically for the summer between your junior and senior year. These are usually paid positions (a general stipend ranging from $2000- $5000) and typically run 8-10 weeks in length. Room, board, and travel expenses are variable. They are opportunities to work in a research lab at state universities, private universities, government labs, and private corporation laboratories.
