Astrophysics Summer Internships for International Students

  1. Jan 8, 2014 #1
    Hi Guys,

    I'm an international student at Columbia University getting my undergraduate degree in Astrophysics. I'm planning to do summer research, and I'm thinking of schools outside of Columbia University. This has been difficult as most REUs stipulate US citizenship or Permanent Residence. Does anyone know of any Astrophysics summer internship that is open to International Students ?

    Please help !

    These will be rare - in most cases the REU funding comes from a source which can only be used for US citizens. Some very few have some partial funding from sources without this restriction, but these are very uncommon (and very competitive).
