Dean's AFRL-Discovery Lab Industry Undergraduate Experiential Learning Assistantship
In collaboration with the AFRL Discovery Lab and its industry partners, Wright State University College of Engineering and Computer Science has created up to 30 experiential learning assistantships for Ohio undergraduate students. The assistantships position students for internships with regional employers through their participation in the Year-at-the-Edge (YATE) Student Intern Program at the AFRL Discovery Lab. The goal of YATE is to accelerate technology innovations while growing tomorrow's technology leaders. Students selected for the program will participate in experiential research activities at the AFRL Discovery Lab for 5-10 hours per week during the fall and spring semesters and full-time during the summer. New students are expected to begin the summer before their freshman year. Totaling $10,000 per year, the assistantships include academic year scholarships of $1,500 per semester, along with research stipends of $1,500 per semester and $4,000 in the summer. The assistantship may be renewable for up to three years subject to satisfactory performance and availability of funds. Students who leave the program early may be able to retain their scholarships for the current semester provided that they are moving to an internship, co-op or permanent position at WSU, an industry sponsor, or AFRL, subject to review and approval by the program director.
Applications for Fall 2013 can be submitted from this page starting November 15, 2012. Decisions are expected on or about April 15 each year starting in 2013.
Participants are expected to remain in good standing by continuing their research at an acceptable level as determined by periodic review of the program director. Additionally, students must maintain a GPA of 3.0 and remain in good standing in an undergraduate major in the College of Engineering and Computer Science.
