Extereme Science Internships
The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute at the Johns Hopkins University will provide an estimated $100,000 per year thru 2016 to Morgan State University to establish and run the Extreme Science Internships (ESI) program. This program provides funds for selected Morgan State University undergraduates to spend 8-15 weeks working at any of the participating research universities, the Army Research Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and companies listed below. Each ESI must be focused on research related to the Center for Materials in Extreme Dynamic Environments managed by HEMI: http://hemi.jhu.edu/cmede/ and http://hemi.jhu.edu/cmede/about
In addition to the research experiences and knowledge gained through this program, ESI students will have the opportunity to develop invaluable connections with practicing scientists and engineers. They will build networks and relationships that are expected to provide job opportunities with the companies and access to graduate degree programs at the participating institutions.
Morgan State undergraduates may apply for ESI support through the ESI office at Morgan State University, reporting to Professor Alvin Kennedy, Dean of the School of Computer Science, Natural Sciences, & Mathematics. The deadline for applications will be defined by the ESI office.
