Mentors

Mentors request an intern by submitting a request using the online application form. Mentors should describe the project for which the intern will apply and any necessary skills the intern needs to have. The deadline for this request is March 11, 2022.

Mentor Responsibilities:

  • Supervise the student for 8 weeks during the summer (dates to be determined between the mentor and the intern)
  • Help the student locate local and affordable housing
  • Help the student develop an LPSC-style abstract at the end of the internship

Financial Support for the Intern:

Selected interns will receive a $7,300 stipend to cover the costs of the internship. This amount covers the internship stipend, travel, housing, and cost of living expenses. Additionally, financial support of up to $1,000 (domestic travelers) and up to $1,500 (international travelers) is offered to interns who submit an accepted abstract to a national conference. See Conferences for more information about this opportunity.

If you are interested in being a mentor, submit a request through the online application form.
