Lamat is an integrated eight-week summer program designed to introduce students to astrophysical research methods and tools through original research projects in computational astrophysics.


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.


Funding Pending. 

Boot Camp

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.
