Student Intern Research Opportunities at Air Force Research Laboratory Human Effectiveness Directorate

 

The Repperger Research Intern Program honors the life and works of Dr. Daniel W. Repperger (1942-2010), who was one of our top scientists and a mentor of many young engineers and scientists.  Through the program, we will be providing 8-10 internships this summer for graduate students or undergraduate students in their junior or senior year to work under the mentorship of an Air Force scientist.  Additional information and application instructions are in the attached brochure and application form.  Here’s a brief summary of the program:
