The Lamat program targets undergraduate students in science and engineering currently enrolled in community colleges in California who might not have research experience, although we welcome applications from other 2-year institutions. Our intent is to provide a unique, comprehensive introduction to computational astrophysics for undergraduate students early in their careers. We will provide students with an intensive, demanding but supportive environment in which they can immerse themselves in a research project alongside other highly motivated students.
All finalists will be expected to attend a “Winter Science Computational Boot Camp” held at the University of California, Santa Cruz from January 10th – 15th, 2016 in preparation for the summer internship. Full financial support will be provided for all winter boot camp participants.
