Internship Opportunities

It’s not too early to think about your plans for next summer. Here’s a list of some government agencies and labs that provide opportunities for undergraduates in the form of research programs, fellowships, internships, and/or summer jobs. A few also offer scholarships; we can help you apply to any that look appropriate for your interests.

Also check with the Career Center for co-ops internships, and jobs in industry.


Please congratulate third year chemistry student Annie Putman who has received a prestigious fellowship from the Environmental Protection Agency through the program “EPA Greater Research Opportunities (GRO) Fellowships for Undergraduate Environmental Study”. Only 15 of these fellowships are awarded each year.

Annie is majoring in chemistry with a concentration in environmental chemistry. She has participated in undergraduate research with Dr. Kerfoot (Biological Sciences) and with Dr. Green (Chemistry). She has recently returned from a summer research project which took her to national parks in Michigan and Minnesota to sample aquatic environments. She works as a coach in the Chemistry Learning Center and has been a member of the NCAA Nordic Ski and Cross Country teams.

This EPA fellowship will cover Annie’s tuition and additional expenses for two years. Additionally, it includes a three month summer internship at an EPA facility.

Congratulations Annie!
