The Summer Internship will be held from June 17th – July 18th, 2013 from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily (Monday – Friday).   The activities will include 1) conducting 5-week long research in applied Mathematics, Computing, Biomedical/Biological Sciences, Education and Physical Sciences, and 2) STEM career workshops and field trips to research laboratories. 


Applicants must be a FSU freshman with an interest in Biology, Biotechnology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Forensic Science, Mathematics and Physical Sciences. 

Program Benefits: 

Selected applicants will receive a stipend of $1000 for participating in the UROMS Summer Research Internship.  In addition, meals (provided daily) and the cost of all field trips or other campus activities will be covered for each participant.

The application for admission can be obtained on-line. All required material (application, letters of recommendation, essay, and transcripts) should be submitted with the application.  Two letters of recommendation from persons qualified to evaluate your academic qualifications are required (ex. a former or current teacher, etc.).  You should solicit recommendations from persons who are familiar with your academic ability and are able to address your potential for success in academic and research settings. Recommendations should be returned to you (in a sealed envelope with their signature over the flap) and submitted with all required material.
