Apply to the NIDA Summer Research Internship Program!

Calling all undergraduates interested in participating in an addiction science summer internship!  The NIDA Summer Research Internship Program supports all students with a focus on increasing underrepresented populations in substance use and addiction research. Through this program, undergraduates age 18 and older are introduced to the field of substance use and addiction research by participating in research internships with NIDA’s distinguished scientists at universities across the United States. Students work with leading scientists for eight weeks during the summer. The internship may include laboratory experiments, data collection, data analysis, formal courses, participation in lab meetings, patient interviews, manuscript preparation, and literature reviews. In addition, it is expected that each intern will deliver a formal presentation on their research project at the end of the internship.  Our program covers travel and housing along with a salary of $15.00/hour.  For more information, please visit NIDA summer research internship program website. The deadline to apply is February 11, 2022.

The University of Missouri has more than 60 slots in our AWESOME summer program for visiting students!  

In addition to providing a full time research experience and end-of-the-summer poster session, we organize evening seminars, specialty small group seminars, and orientation and social activities designed to create a supportive peer community.  Many of our seminars focus on professional development, tailored to different levels of student experience.  We provide students and faculty the tools they need to quickly establish a productive mentoring relationship.  And Columbia, Missouri is a great place to get away from distractions for the summer, and focus on research and professional development at a major research university — Big Time research with the Small Town touch!

Stipends range from $3400-$6000 and on-campus room & board.
