Reach out to us and connect with us to learn which is the best fit for you. By applying to more than one internship you increase your odds of getting in. For example the SiPARCS program students get to choose between two projects they are interested which means your odds are increased in that internship. Then you can apply to SOARS or NESSI or any of the other programs to also increase your odds.

Lastly, make sure to customize your cover letters for EACH position you apply for. Do not just copy and paste a cover letter and change the name of the recipient. As a reviewer of resumes myself, I move forward applicants who write personalized cover letters answering the requested questions.
