Good morning. I would like to alert you to a new program we have set up for our undergrads to provide internship opportunities in companies throughout Oregon for them during the summer.  We hope to continue to grow this list to become the “one stop” shopping for our majors when looking for summer internship experiences using their chemistry skills.

Please alert any Chemistry majors that are interested in this opportunity to the website. The deadline for summer 2014 applications from students is April 15.

If you are aware of a company looking for interns who is not listed, please direct them to the website where there is information on how to get their information listed.

Calling OSU undergraduate students!  Looking for a paid summer internship that is more than just a job? Want to gain skills to be competitive in the workforce? PROMISE is a ten-week developmental internship program for OSU undergraduate students designed to provide professional or technical paid work experience and mentoring at OSU, state, and local agencies. Come to the info and application session on March 12, 12:30-2:30 p.m. in the Native American Longhouse.

We are pleased to announce the fifth year of the summer internship program, SCI Scholars, for chemistry and chemical engineering undergraduates.

The program is a joint effort of the Society of Chemical Industry (SCI) America International Group, the American Chemical Society (ACS), and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (AIChE), and was developed to introduce chemistry and chemical engineering students to careers in the chemical industry.

Exceptional sophomores and juniors with a GPA of at least 3.5 and who are majoring in chemistry or chemical engineering are encouraged to apply.

Program details:

  • Thirty-five scholars will be chosen for internship positions in the summer of 2014.
  • SCI Scholars receive $6,000-$10,000+ for a ten-week internship.
  • Students will be awarded a certificate and an additional $1,000, which can be used for any purpose, such as participation at an ACS or AIChE meeting.
  • Scholars nominate a high school chemistry teacher for recognition. Teachers will be awarded a certificate from SCI and $1,000, which can be used for professional development or classroom materials.
  • Applications are due December 14, 2013.
  • Interested students should visit to fill out an application and get more information.

I would greatly appreciate it if you could forward (or post) the SCI Program Flyer PDF at to any students you think might be interested in the program, as well as to any faculty members who could help promote this program to their students.  Thank you for your assistance in bringing this exceptional opportunity to the attention of your undergraduates.
