AFRL Reaches Out to ECE for Interns

The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) Scholars Program is offering stipend-paid internship opportunities for undergraduate and graduate-level university students pursuing STEM degrees.

Selected interns gain hands-on experiences working with full-time AFRL scientists and engineers on cutting-edge research and technology and are able to contribute to unique, research-based projects.

The AFRL Scholars Program at Kirtland AFB in Albuquerque, NM, offers various programs and projects in STEM fields specific to each technical directorate. Directed Energy projects support research areas such as high energy lasers, high power microwaves, laser plasma experiments/diagnostics, optics, and many more! Space Vehicles projects support research areas such as aerospace technologies, cold atom research, satellite image and signal analysis, space weather modeling, and many more!

At AFRL New Mexico, the AFRL Scholars Program offers internship opportunities in research-based projects for undergraduate, and graduate students, as well as professional educators. Interns research the exciting technologies in Directed Energy and Space Vehicles Directorates, gain valuable hands-on learning experience under the mentorship of full-time AFRL scientists and engineers, and develop relationships with other scholars that will last a lifetime!

Internships are typically 10–12 weeks, with a minimum requirement of 8 weeks. Extensions up to 14 weeks can be approved based on mentor need and funding availability.
