2021 Summer Student Program

Are you interested in astronomy and astrophysical research? Are you looking for a full-time summer internship to participate in the academic research of astronomy, astrophysics, or astronomical instrumentation? If so, then you are encouraged to apply for the ASIAA Summer Student Program.

Our Summer Students conduct original research at the forefront of observational, theoretical, or laboratory-based topics in astronomy and astrophysics under the supervision of a professional astronomer at ASIAA. Students also attend a series of lectures on basic astronomy to support their projects and for general knowledge. At the end of the 8-week program, students give a final presentation on their research project. For a list of publications resulting from previous summer student projects, see
