|January 13 - May 1, 2020|
Our program begins Monday, January 13, 2020, and runs through Friday, May13, 2020. Each student will be paired with an Ames Laboratory/Iowa State University scientist/mentor for their internship; however, students should also expect to work closely with graduate students. Our program is 16 weeks in length to allow interns sufficient time to write papers for submission to peer-reviewed journals, as suggested by mentors. Each student will also be required to prepare many other assignments. You will be required under the SULI program to make an oral or poster presentation on the outcome of your research activities, complete a 1500-3000 word research project report, a general audience abstract, and a one-page peer review of another SULI intern's talk or poster prior to the end of the program.

Move-in Days: January 11 and 12, 2020. Watch your email or access online calendar (above) for additional information.
NOTE: Our program does not provide funding for off-site housing in Ames. This includes students who may already have housing in Ames. We believe part of the overall SULI experience is the growth experience provided by having our student interns live together in on-campus apartments during our internships. We feel the sharing of information and the camaraderie that comes from after-hours interactions is a valuable take-away from our program, a take-away that can last a lifetime. We do not mandate that students live in provided housing during their internship, but our program will not fund off-site housing. Please do not ask us to make a concession for you.
