My name is Mike Janney, I am a Sr. Recruiter for Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU). I am e-mailing you to alert you regarding two summer programs currently accepting applicants for the 2018 summer period. The U.S. Army Research Lab Summer Journeyman Fellowship Program and the U.S. Army Institute for Surgical Research Summer Internship Program. These are amazing opportunities for your students to expand their research experience within their area of study!
In addition these summer opportunities, we have an extensive amount of available research opportunities with over 70 Department of Defense programs in all areas of STEM. I hope that you will encourage your students to check out the available opportunities administered by the ORAU Maryland Office.
