Summer Research

  1. May 15, 2010 #1
    Hi. So I'm currently an undergrad sophomore about to end the school year. I haven't got much research so far in physics (I only recently started a once a week Monte Carlo research with a professor).

    I'm wondering if there are ANY summer programs/internships/experience I could do? Or have I completely missed all the deadlines.

    If I can't do these official programs, what else should I be doing over the summer to build my research resume for grad school?

    Please help! I don't want to waste another summer when I could be doing something productive!

    I'm also African American if that may help with minority programs/etc.

    Nope. Almost all official summer programs are full up and most professors already have enough research assistants. You could learn programming or just explore in physics a bit to get ready for next summer but your chances of finding something now are slim. Good luck
