Summer research for international students

  1. Feb 18, 2010 #1
    Hi everyone!

    First of all, I'm sorry for possible grammar mistakes, because English is not my native.
    I'm a 3rd-year student at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology. I have a strong background in physics and math, my GPA is 4.8/5.0. I'm looking for summer internship program which is available for international students. I've tried to take part into Fermilab summer program and SURF, but unfortunately, I've failed. Almost all summer programs I've found are eligible for only U.S. citizens or permanent residents. Can you advice any internships?

    Actually, most of the summer internship programs are for students AT US universities. Some of these programs are open to international students, but they must be in a US institution to qualify.

    I'm not aware of any program that would allow students from another country to do an internship here. What you should do is look at within your country to see if there are any "exchange" programs that send students to other countries for an internship. I think within Europe, there should be plenty of those where students get to work at CERN, etc.
