SPIE Student Chapter at DSU - Summer 2014, DSU brought this national organization to the campus. Opportunities for internships, scholarships, and professional development for UG and graduate students (M.S. and Ph.D.) in the field of optics research. Visit the website for more information.


  Student Internship, Fellowship Opportunities

Pursuing careers in the science and technology fields requires much preparation, not only academically, i.e., in the classroom, but also outside of the classroom. Equally important to student academics is:

  • acquiring practical experience - gaining lab experience while engaging in research projects, and summer internships;

  • securing funding for educational pursuits - applying to fellowships and scholarships; and 

  • availing one's self to professional development opportunities - attending conferences, symposia, and meetings, and holding memberships in professional associations in his or her intended discipline.

Listed below are just a few of our recurring internship and scholarship opportunities for DSU students majoring in science, technology, mathematics, and engineering. We endeavor to keep our resources updated on a semi-regular basis, however, additional resources may be available by contacting your department chairperson, referring to department bulletin boards and receiving email notifications.
