AFRL Scholars Program

The application for the 2016 summer program opens on November 3, 2015, and the AFRL will be accepting applications from students with top academic credentials and an interest in science, engineering, and mathematics. Students from undergraduate and graduate-level studies are eligible for the program. Graduate students also have the opportunity to continue their thesis research, provided the AFRL topic coincides with their research objectives.

Students will intern within the Space Vehicles or Directed Energy directorates, facilitated by close interaction with fellow scholars and AFRL scientists and engineers in one of several research areas of interest.  They will have the unique opportunity to participate in stimulating research efforts that directly contribute to the Nation’s defense, while developing skills and contacts that will be of great value when they join the professional workforce.  We hope that you will support these programs by promoting these summer research opportunities to students.  Please encourage your students to visit the AFRL Scholars website now and begin gathering the necessary documents for the application process.  Please share this information with all students who might be interested in the program.
