About the program
A partnership between Arizona State University (ASU) and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) was established to create the ASU–Berkeley Lab STEM Pathways (ABSP) Program. A goal of the ABSP Program is to create opportunities for American Indian students interested in pursuing graduate-level studies and careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
During the summer internship, participants will:
- Receive funding support to cover travel, stipend, housing costs, and other materials.
- Work with scientists, engineers, technicians, and/or STEM professionals on projects related to the Lab’s research program.
- Work on-site at LBNL in Berkeley, California during the summer term.
- Work full-time 40 hrs/week.
- Have access to a cohort of peers from across the U.S.
- Write a research paper with their Mentor Group.
- Present at a poster session during the final week of the program.
- Complete all assignments and deliverables including intern/mentor photos.
After the summer internship, participants will:
- Have the opportunity to attend a major research conference (funding provided).
- Receive support on future applications and transitions to PhD programs in their chosen STEM field of study.
