Mentors: Your Intern's Program Requirements

The majority of your intern's time is spent in the lab or workplace with you, but there are program-centered assignments and responsibilities that need to be completed. Look at your intern's deliverables and assignments throughout the summer so you can help them meet their deadlines and take advantage of the opportunities to attend lectures and tours and interact with other physicists and interns. The following describes the main deliverables, meetings and tours. Look under the submenus on the left for the calendar and deliverables/assignments associated with your intern's program.

Intern Deliverables

Depending on the program, interns may have to make a poster, write an abstract, paper and/or presentation. Please help your students make their deadlines with these. Check the program requirements by holding down the mouse on Program Requirements in the menu on the left. At the end of the internship, students from some programs will participate in a poster session.
