CAMP Research Internship Programs

The Summer and Academic Year Research Programs provide research experiences to CAMP eligible students.  Interns work in a UCSB laboratory with a graduate student or postdoctoral researcher mentor.  In addition to research, interns participate in professional development workshops and seminars.  Interns present their research at the end of the programs.  

Summer Research Program

The Summer Research Program provides a 9 week intensive research experience for CAMP eligible students interested in a career in science, engineering, technology or mathematics. Graduate student and postdoctoral researcher mentors provide one-on-one training and support for the research project. In addition to research, the interns also participate in weekly group meetings to develop oral presentation skills, attend special seminars and present their results at an end-of-summer poster session. Students also present their research at the statewide CAMP symposium the year after completing their internship.
