New Policy Internships for Physics Students
12 November 2009 11:29 am
The American Institute of Physics is looking for undergraduates with Potomac Fever. The new AIP Mather Public Policy Intern Program aims to broaden the institute's summer research internships to include students interested in science policy. It is funded through a foundation set up by John Mather, an astrophysicist at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center, using money from his 2006 Nobel Prize award.
The program hopes to place two upper-level undergraduates in positions on Capitol Hill. The application deadline is 1 February for the 2010 summer program, which runs for 10 weeks. For more information, contact Gary White at firstname.lastname@example.org.
