Overview of the program
CMMAP offers paid summer undergraduate research internships at Colorado State University. Interns participate in a 10 week program from June through early August. This is an exciting research opportunity in beautiful Fort Collins, Colorado. Join world-class atmospheric scientists investigating the science of clouds, climate and climate change, weather, and modeling. During our program interns have the opportunity to attend scientific seminars, visit National Scientific Laboratories, and participate in a variety of professional development training.

The application deadline for 2015 has passed. The process for 2016 summer applicants will begin in late 2015.
