Eligibility & Logistics

The AYRIU program is open to undergraduate students who will be in their sophomore, junior and senior year at the time of the internship. International students are also encouraged to apply.

A special emphasis is placed on identifying and recruiting students who are historically underrepresented in the sciences (i.e., African-American, Hispanic, Native Pacific Islander, or Native American students or first-to-college students).

Program Timing

[UPDATE: As of August 2017, we are not accepting any additional AYRIU applications.] Since the program occurs during the academic year, participants are required to make arrangements with their undergraduate institution to be away from campus for one or more terms (quarters or semesters).

While all participants are required to complete a minimum of three months in the program, students may complete a research experience at TSRI lasting up to one year.

Housing and Support

Housing will be arranged for selected participants in the residence halls located on the Florida Atlantic University (FAU) campus immediately adjacent to TSRI in Jupiter. Selected students will receive a weekly stipend of approximately $500 to pay for the FAU housing, food and other needs.
