Summer Research Experience

Consider applying to be a paid summer intern for the Dow Science and Sustainability Education Center (DSSEC).  High school science teachers, high school students, and SVSU undergraduate students are welcome to apply for an opportunity to participate in scientific research during the summer with SVSU faculty. SVSU faculty will be directing projects in the areas of biochemistry, biology, chemistry, and engineering; however, each project is closely aligned with the Saginaw Bay Environmental Science Institute (SBESI).  Funding is available for undergraduate student internship positions for up to 8 weeks (20-30 hrs/wk).

The summer internship will occur during SVSU’s summer term:  June 26 – August 3, 2017.
