The Calendar Calculator is only useful in determining whether or not you can possibly participate in the program. All schedules are ultimately at the discretion of your ASE mentor. Some mentors have family vacations planned during the summer or need students in the lab during specific times during the summer for research. Most internship schedules allow for 2 weeks of vacation during the summer. Internships CANNOT start before the end of the school year. Most start dates will be either June 15th or June 22nd. Internships MUST be completed by August 21st. Students must complete 296 internship hours. ASE also prefers that students save at least 2 extra make-up days for possible illness at the end of the summer.
