The Apprenticeships in Science & Engineering (ASE) program connects motivated high school students with mentors in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) pre-professional internships.
Internships are eight-week, full-time summer positions, designed by mentors themselves. These internships take place throughout Oregon and Southwest Washington, including Portland, Eugene, Corvallis, and Vancouver. Mentor organizations include universities, hospitals, research institutions and private companies. The application process is competitive, with more than 400 applicants each year for approximately 110 positions. ASE internships attract rising sophomores, juniors and seniors from throughout the Northwest, and roughly 70% of interns are from backgrounds underrepresented in the sciences. ASE interns have been listed on published research, helped to design and test commercial products and spent countless hours in the field and in the lab.
Note: The ASE Application for 2023 will open January 9, 2023.
