Summer Research Opportunities

We have put together a list of summer research opportunities at UCB and other institutions, based on pamphlets that we have received. This list is by no means exhaustive, but should give you a start to finding summer programs. The deadlines vary, with some in mid-January and others in early March. If you see something of interest, do some research to determine the time frame in which you need to work to apply.
