STEM Research Opportunities Summer Internships & Post-Baccalaureate Programs
Summer Internships - curated by Cientifico Latino "Research experiences for undergraduates (REUs, also known as SURPs or SURFs) are paid summer internships, usually for 6-8 weeks (sometimes including housing) at research institutions. Undergraduates are paired with a lab and gain valuable research experience. These are extremely helpful for obtaining post-graduate jobs in STEM and applying to graduate or professional schools."
Post-Baccalaureate Programs - curated by Cientifico Latino "Post-baccalaureate (“post-bac”) programs are designed to help a recent college graduate better transition into a professional school. For students who are still figuring out whether graduate school is the right path for them, or want to enhance their research experience knowing it will improve their competitiveness, post-bac programs are exceptional in preparing students with rigorous curricula and push them to articulating what they’ve learned."
