The Ponca Tribe of Nebraska has received information regarding two separate internship opportunities for students.
The first is an undergraduate internship through Sanford Research with the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE). SURE focuses students’ research experiences on social/behavioral research in American Indian community-based projects. These are 10 week long, paid internships, with financial support for housing, travel, and expenses, with locations in Mission, Rosebud, and Sioux Falls, SD.
Undergraduate college students from groups underrepresented in science are especially encouraged to apply, with an emphasis on students interested in going on to graduate school.
Application deadline is February 11th, but if there are open positions, there will be a rolling deadline.
For more information, visit our webpage at www.sanfordresearch.org/education/undergraduates/sure/, or find us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/SandfordSURE/, or email SURE@sanfordhealth.org.
The second opportunity is a summer internship for middle and high school students with the APHIS AgDiscovery 2019 program, through the USDA. This is a zero cost opportunity for middle and high school students to live and study at one of approximately 20 universities offering courses in agribusiness, animal science and health, or a combination of both.
Applications for the APHIS AgDiscovery 2019 program must be postmarked or received electronically by midnight EST on March 15, 2019. Selected students will be notified the week of May 7, 2019.
