US Astrophysics Internship for International Students

  1. Aug 20, 2013 #1
    Hi guys,

    I'm from Singapore and am starting my studies in Astrophysics in Columbia in like 2 weeks!!!! I am so excited! I am planning a bit ahead and looking at REU website for next summer's internships, and I really want an internship in my field of astrophysics. Looking through that website, it seems that most of the minimum requirement is : I have to be a US Citizen.... ... argh... ... I guess I can apply for the lottery, but in the meantime, do you guys know ANY INTERNSHIP IN ASTROPHYSICS ( seriously, anything in the summer , as long as it is within astrophysics/astronomy ) where I do not have to be a US Citizen to get an Internship? I'm desperate and will do anything to get experience in Astronomy!!!

    Montana State has an REU in solar physics which accepts international applicants. I think there is one other, but I can't remember it off the top of my head right now. You might be better off just seeking summer research at Columbia.
