The American Physical Society and IBM co-sponsor a research internship program for underrepresented undergraduate minority students. The goal is to encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering.
The internships are salaried positions typically 10 weeks long at IBM Research — Almaden (San Jose, CA), and include the opportunity to work closely with an IBM mentor. The Almaden lab has a full range of research. Research areas of the internship are individually chosen so as to optimize the match between the skills and interests of the student, and the ongoing research programs of the laboratory.
