IACMI 2The Knoxville-based Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI) has announced that it is accepting applications from graduate and undergraduate students interested in participating in a short-term, 10-week summer program at one of IACMI’s partner sites.

The recruitment is being coordinated by Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU).

Program participants will receive a weekly stipend based on hours of participation as well as weekly housing allowance and limited in- and out-bound travel reimbursement to and from the internship site.

To be eligible, an applicant must be a U.S. citizen and a student in good standing at a regionally accredited U.S. college or university and have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.2 or the equivalent as verified by official transcripts. All applicants must be at least 18 years old at the time of appointment and provide proof of health insurance coverage.
