QEM/NSF Talent Development and Innovation and Sciences (TDIS) Summer Internship
May 24 – July 30, 2021
We are requesting your assistance to share the Internship Application and Internship eligibility requirements with your students for the QEM/NSF Talent Development and Innovation Sciences (TDIS) Summer Internship. Also, we would appreciate your printing and posting the attached flyer on your department bulletin board to further ensure that students are aware of this opportunity.
The ten-week, virtual summer internship opportunity (May 24 – July 30, 2021) is made possible through a grant to the Quality Education for Minorities (QEM) Network from the National Science Foundation (NSF). The internship will provide a $6,000 (undergraduate) and $7,000 ( graduate) taxable stipend, payable in three installments during the summer.
During the internship, students will have an opportunity to be mentored by program officers at NSF that are involved in making science policy and in implementing national programs focused on STEM. The experience is designed to increase the students’ understanding of how science policy is made as well as to further develop their potential of becoming leaders and proponents of increased participation in STEM by students from underrepresented minority groups.
