We encourage all our students to apply for internships, but not haphazardly. We recommend you approach your search for applications as follows:

1. Look through all the links on this page, and make a list of the internships that pique your interest.

2. Discuss them with your advisor (Dr. Shirley, Dr. Small, or Dr. Wehrle) to examine whether those internships are a good fit for you and your future plans.

3. Line up recommendations as soon as possible.

4. Apply!

While we make every effort to keep this list updated, it is by no means exhaustive. If you find internships not listed here, or if any of the links here are broken or outdated, please let Dr. Shirley know.
