FTPP Paid Internships and Course Credited Summer Camp
NSF EPSCoR Future Technologies and enabling Plasma Processes (FTPP)
Location: Huntsville, Alabama
Astronomy and Space Science
Future Technologies and enabling Plasma Processes offers four different internship opportunities (funded by the NSF EPSCoR grant):
RIPP - Regional Introduction to Plasma Physics - 9-week paid summer research internship program at an FTPP institution.
CIPTA - Corporate Internship Plasma Training in Alabama - 10-week paid summer internship program at an Alabama private company.
ISWC - International Space Weather Camp - Summer camp with University course credit, all-expense paid internship, including international travel to South Africa.
SE REU - South Eastern Research Experiences for Undergraduates - Funded/Paid program for HBCU students to participate in quality REU programs at an FTPP partner institution.
The ISWC, SE REU, and RIPP internships provide STEM students the opportunity to do hands-on science with leading researchers on cutting-edge research projects in plasma physics, while the CIPTA internship gives students real-world experience working in a corporate environment on the latest plasma physics technologies. The students make lots of connections during their internships. The CIPTA interns are able to make very important connections in the corporate world, while the ISWC, SE REU and RIPP internships let students make connections with other interns and professors, and researchers in a wide array of plasma physics fields. And in the case of the ISWC internships participants are able to meet other students from the Southeastern United States, Germany, and South Africa.
