The Air Force Research Laboratory is encouraging students to participate in the 2016 summer internship program sponsored by the Directed Energy and Space Vehicles Directorates.  AFRL Scholars Program is a unique opportunity for students who are interested in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

The application for the 2016 summer program opens on November 3, 2015, and the AFRL will be accepting applications from students with top academic credentials and an interest in science, engineering, and mathematics. Students from undergraduate and graduate-level studies are eligible for the program. Graduate students also have the opportunity to continue their thesis research, provided the AFRL topic coincides with their research objectives.

Students will intern within the Space Vehicles or Directed Energy directorates, facilitated by close interaction with fellow scholars and AFRL scientists and engineers in one of several research areas of interest.  They will have the unique opportunity to participate in stimulating research efforts that directly contribute to the Nation’s defense, while developing skills and contacts that will be of great value when they join the professional workforce.
