PRECIP - Pre-College Internship Program
NCAR Research Applications Lab
High school students participate in research projects with scientists and engineers during the six-week PRECIP summer program. Participants also learn to communicate scientific work, culminating in creation and presentation of a scientific poster during the NCAR summer intern poster session. All high school students interested in the atmospheric and related sciences, including meteorology, chemistry, physics, engineering, mathematics, and hydrology, are encouraged to apply.

Technical Internship Program (TIP)
NCAR Earth Observing Lab
EOL TIP interns gain experience in electronics technology, instrument making, aircraft mechanics, systems administration, or other technical support fields related to the geosciences. Interns are paired with mentors and develop knowledge to help them in future science support careers. Open to students enrolled in two-year colleges and vocational/technical institutions in the Colorado Front Range region. This is a salaried internship for up to 20 hours/week for 12 weeks. Hours are flexible to coordinate with the student's academic schedule.

The SOARS Program
UCAR Center for Science Education
Significant Opportunities in Atmospheric Research and Science (SOARS) is an undergraduate-to-graduate program built around a 10-week summer research internship, mentoring by top scientists, and a supportive learning community for diverse students studying science, math, engineering, social science, and other related fields. SOARS also offers financial support for academics and conference attendance.
CISL Summer Internships in Parallel Computational Science (SIPARCS)
NCAR Computational and Information Systems Lab
Offers undergraduates who will have completed their sophomore year significant hands-on R&D opportunities in supercomputing and data systems. Gain experience alongside experts providing services to the geosciences community and conducting research and development in computational science, data analysis, scientific visualization, and numerical modeling. Graduate students may also apply.
EOL Summer Undergraduate Program for Engineering Research (SUPER)
NCAR Earth Observing Lab
Interns in electrical, mechanical, optical, aerospace, and software engineering are encouraged to develop their own solutions as they work with and are mentored by experienced engineers and technicians.
