Use the summer to take your research experience to the next level! 

Participating in research during the summer allows students to focus on their projects in a more intensive way that may not be possible during the academic year. UT Austin students are able to do research in labs on campus as well as through programs hosted by outside institutions. 


GETTING STARTED

To learn more about summer opportunities, view these slides and browse programs and opportunities at the links below.

If you have questions about how to find a summer program or would like assistance crafting your application materials, make a consultation appointment with one of our student ambassdors or with Lynda Gonzales, Director of Student Programs, at https://calendly.com/lyndag-1/30-min-experiential-learning-consultation.

FINDING SUMMER RESEARCH PROGRAMS

Subscribe to the CNS experiential learning list serve to receive postings and information about summer research opportunities in the sciences.

Search databases and listings for research opportunities that take place off-campus/outside UT-Austin.

These links take you to lists of formal summer research programs that are hosted at institutions across the country. These programs require an application, and if selected, typcially offer stipends for participation but may differ on other accomodations (such as housing assistance and travel).  

Search professional society resources.

Find government, nonprofit & industry internships that incorporate research.

Consider a research experience abroad. 

Explore summer research programs at UT. (Participation may be limited to non-UT students in some cases; read each announcement for details).

Are you a CNS student who will be participating in an advanced research experience under the supervision of a UT faculty member or research supervisor in Summer 2021? Consider applying for the TIDES Advanced Research Fellowship More Here
