The ALSAMP Internship program is designed to provide research experiences for undergraduates from alliance institutions majoring in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Interns participate in hands-on research activities for eight weeks with graduate faculty mentors at The University of Alabama at Birmingham and present a project at the concluding ALSAMP Summer Internship Conference.

The conference is designed to:

  1. Provide an opportunity for alliance students to meet and share successes and solutions to problems faced by minority students in the pursuit of careers in STEM,
  2. Provide a forum to showcase ALSAMP student research,
  3. Motivate ALSAMP students to pursue Ph.D. degrees in STEM,
  4. Expose ALSAMP students to successful minority scientists, engineers and leaders in the scientific community, and
  5. Provide an opportunity for ALSAMP faculty to exchange ideas and plan curriculum reform.

In addition, interns are required to enroll in at least one science or engineering course for credit. An intern seminar series is held each Friday. The seminars host invited speakers and provide an array of activities of interest to the interns.
