Academic Level:
Undergraduates - First Year
Undergraduates - Sophomore
Undergraduates - Junior
Undergraduates - Senior

Description:
The Space Sciences Laboratory (SSL) at the University of California, Berkeley is a nationally renowned lab created to better understand Earth's atmosphere and space environment, the Sun, Solar System, and the Universe.

The ASSURE program, supported by the National Science Foundation provides up to ten summer internship placements for community college and first generation students to conduct cutting-edge research projects, supervised by leading experts in the space science and engineering fields.

This program is dedicated to providing opportunities for enthusiastic and dedicated first generation and minority students, and any students for whom a research opportunity may be a challenge. Although anyone enrolled in a Fall 2017 undergraduate course is eligible to apply, rising sophomore, junior and senior students are preferred. Students majoring in physics, math, astronomy, astrophysics, computer science, chemistry, geology, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and other related subjects are encouraged to apply.

No research experience is required for this program. We are seeking motivated, self-starting students with an interest in space sciences and engineering who are eager to learn and expand their skills and experiences. Although not required, a basic understanding of computer programming will be helpful, as this is an important component of all projects.
