The University of Colorado Boulder invites undergraduates to apply for a paid summer research experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will come to Boulder, Colorado for 10 weeks to work on a research project with a mentor. The topic areas span the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun, the Sun-Earth system, the near-Earth environment, or the heliosphere. Successful applicants will work with scientist mentors at one of eight Boulder institutes (see 'Read More'). For further details see link) and to request more information, email

Deadline for applications: February 1, 2023
