Monticello Foundation Internship and the Robert and Delpha Noland Summer Internships - Proposals Due by February 22

The Dean of Students Office is accepting proposals for the Monticello Foundation Internship and the Robert and Delpha Noland Summer Internships. A small number of female undergraduate students will be given an opportunity to participate in research projects outside of the Caltech community for ten weeks during the summer.  Each student will receive a $6,000 stipend, the same amount as SURF students earn.
There are no restrictions as to where the research can be done, except that it must take place outside the Caltech-JPL community. Other universities, commercial labs, or any industrial facility in which the student can arrange to conduct or participate in a research project can be the site for the experience.  All arrangements with the principal researcher will be the responsibility of the student.

Each intern will be asked to submit a short synopsis of her report to the Deans’ Office at the end of the summer as well as attend a luncheon during fall term to share her experiences.

Interested?  Identify a sponsor for your experience at a research facility for a ten-week period.  In a short essay, describe your project in as much detail as possible, including where you hope to work and for whom and submit it online:  along with some information about you, your proposal and a copy of your resume or CV. 

Please also provide two faculty recommendations.  Faculty may send the recommendations directly to Rosemary Larranaga, the Deans Office Manager via email to or send a hard copy to the Undergraduate Deans Office at MC 210-87.

The Deans’ Office has sample proposals from past years for your review. Please stop by to review them or to discuss your proposal with one of us before the deadline date.

Proposals must be received by 5PM on Thursday, February 22, 2018.  Please be sure to let us know if you have any questions or need further information.
