The U.S. Army Research Laboratory (ARL) Research Associateship Program (RAP) Summer Journeyman Fellowship Program allows undergraduates, graduates students and recent postgraduates at the bachelor’s and master’s level to engage in research initiatives of their own choice, that are compatible with the interests of the government and will potentially contribute to the general effort of the ARL. Scientists and engineers at ARL help shape and execute the Army's program for meeting the challenge of developing technologies that will support Army forces in meeting future operational needs. It is also the fourth component of the ARL’s Research Associateship Program (RAP).

USAISR - Summer Internships 2018  (U.S. Citizenship is Required)

The US Army Institute of Surgical Research (USAISR) is seeking applications for summer internship appointments for undergraduate students from accredited colleges and universities to conduct research at the USAISR.  The internship has a firm start date of Monday, 4 June, and will end on Friday, 10 August 2018.  Applicants will be evaluated once their complete packet is submitted.  The final deadline for application submission is Tuesday, January 2, 2018.  Only U.S. citizens with a minimum GPA of 3.5 are eligible for this program.

The intent of the undergraduate student internship is to provide an opportunity for students interested in science, engineering or medical career fields to participate in research directed at improving the care of injured military service members and society at large.  This mentored research experience will expose interns to ongoing efforts in integrated science, technology and engineering solutions at the nation’s premier military trauma research institute.  Selected candidates will be compensated $2,750.00 per month, based upon full-time participation.

Prerequisites:  All interns must have completed at least their First Year class requirements for a bachelor’s degree with an overall GPA of 3.5 of higher (out of a maximum of 4.0; if other scale is used, provide qualitative interpretation and/or equivalency to 4.0 scale).  A science or engineering program of study is preferred, and prior research experience will be considered. 

Practical Research Experience Program (PREP)

North American students are invited to apply for the TUM Practical Research Experience Program (PREP), a 10-week program that runs over the course of the summer. PREP participants will build up and further refine their research skills, learn more about the specifics of the German higher education and research landscape, and become members of the diverse scientific community at Germany's top-ranked technical university.

Applicants must meet the following application criteria:

  • Undergraduate or graduate students
    (at least 2 years of undergraduate studies completed when arriving to TUM)
  • GPA minimum: 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale)
  • Project-specific skills as mentioned in project descriptions

No German language proficiency is required to participate in the program. Applicants are expected to be aware of recognition and credit transfer regulations at their home institutions. 

TUM International Center will arrange accommodation for all program participants, and award scholarships to students in need of financial support. An orientation event as well as cultural program will ensure that program participants are well integrated into the local student body, and will have a chance to immerse themselves in the unique cultural and economic environment of Munich and Bavaria, respectively.

Applications are due December 1, 2017.
