Summer research deadlines are looming

Many summer research programs are
funded by the National Science Foundation
There is still time to apply for summer research internships, but deadlines are quickly approaching.  Many programs require application materials, including recommendation letters from faculty, by late January or early February.  This previous post describes how to find these opportunities to get paid to perform scientific research, adding valuable experience for future job searches or graduate school applications.

And if you have found a few programs of interest, why not apply to more?  Getting a summer research position is highly competitive.  You increase your chances of getting accepted if you apply to many programs.
