I hope you are having a great Spring 2023 semester! FIRE is excited to
announce the 2023 FIRE Summer Research Internships
<>, a research experience and professional
development opportunity built for a wide range of University of Maryland
(UMD) students. This opportunity is available to UMD undergraduates both
affiliated with and independent of the FIRE program at UMD.

FIRE Summer Research Internships provide:


   a research-intensive, faculty-mentored 8-week summer experience



   3 credits of transcript-impacting FIRE199: FIRE Research Internship
   course credit

FIRE Summer Research Interns work closely with our FIRE Faculty Leaders
<> and a small group of their
undergraduate peers on focused research projects in FIRE stream
<> locations across campus.

All FIRE Summer Research Interns will participate in a broad range of
potential research engagements:


   receive fundamental research, technology, and method training (no
   previous experience is required for all participants),

   learn, test, and implement new research methodologies and protocols,

   design and pilot experiments,

   gather and analyze data,

   and develop and share a finalized project or other research

All FIRE Summer Research Interns will strongly develop their leadership
potential and other professional capacities through weekly program-wide
seminars and professional development discussions.

Each FIRE stream <> has a small number of
FIRE Summer Research Interns, ensuring selected students get a focused,
faculty-mentored research experience.


The FIRE Summer Research Internships is the opportunity through which FIRE
is able to offer its resources to students who are currently in FIRE, those
who have already completed FIRE, and other UMD undergraduate students who
are not affiliated with FIRE.

To be clear on this issue of eligibility for FIRE Summer Research
Internships - the following groups of UMD undergraduates are encouraged to
consider this exciting opportunity and apply:


   Current FIRE students

      Enrolled in FIRE Semester 2, Spring 2023

   Current FIRE Peer Research Mentors

   Completed FIRE students

      Those who have already completed FIRE, not currently FIRE Peer
      Research Mentors, at UMD completing their degree. Do you wish you could
      come back to FIRE and have an additional mentored internship
experience to
      broaden your research portfolio? You can!

   All current UMD undergraduates

      Did you just transfer to UMD? Are you or were you in another
      first-year program? Do you have extensive research experience or
would you
      like to use the FIRE Summer Research Internships as a gateway to get
      involved in research? You are eligible!

How to Apply

Due to space limitations, FIRE Summer Research Internship positions are by
application through March 27, 2023 (apply here
<>). Our application purposefully does
not ask about your grades, GPA, or previous academic and/or research
accomplishments. We simply want to know more about you, and your
motivations for pursuing a research and professional development experience
with FIRE.

We will use the perspectives you share to find students we think are a good
match for the opportunity we offer.

The Process After Application

After the application period ends, the following process will occur:


   Application Evaluations & Decisions: March 28, 2023 - April 6, 2023

   Decisions Communicated to Applicants: by April 7, 2023

   Confirmation of Participation: by 5:00 pm on April 14, 2023

      All accepted applicants will confirm their intention to be a 2023
      FIRE Summer Research Intern. During this time, we will contact any
      applicants placed on the FIRE Summer Research Internships waitlist about
      positions that have become available.

   Enrollment in Summer FIRE 199 Course: by 5:00 pm on April 21, 2023

      Students who confirm their acceptance with the FIRE Summer Research
      Internships are expected to enroll in FIRE199 and will need to pay
      the tuition and fees required for this course credit. Failure to do
      so will result in the loss of acceptance into the summer program.
