The University of Minnesota has summer research programs in a number of disciplines including the life sciences, chemistry and bioinformatics.
The Life Sciences Summer Research Program (LSSURP) oversees and coordinates four life sciences programs which include ecology and the environment, molecular biology, neuroscience and independent research. The programs begin with a joint orientation weekend followed by participation in a 10-week research project under the direction of a University of Minnesota faculty mentor, and numerous special activities focused on professional development as well as social interaction. The summer research experience concludes with a poster symposium and banquet. LSSURP is designed to potentially recruit highly qualified students to the graduate life science programs of the University of Minnesota. LSSURP Information
The Lillehei Heart Institute at the University provides summer research scholarships in cardiovascular medicine. The major focus is intensive basic or clinical research with each scholar being assigned to a laboratory and a faculty mentor. Scholars will be introduced to clinical, industrial and academic medicine. The Lillehei Heart Institute
The Department of Chemistry at the University sponsors a summer research program for outstanding undergraduate students. The Chemistry Summer Research Program is designed to encourage students in the chemical sciences to learn more about research in chemistry and provide them with the opportunity to work in a lab under the direction of a faculty member.

The Bioinformatics Summer Institute (BSI) at the University sponsors a summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students. The program is supported by the NSF, NIH and the University of Minnesota.
Bioinformatics Summer Institute (BSI)
The Supercomputing Institute for Digital Simulation and Advanced Computation sponsors an Undergraduate Internship Program. The focus of the program is the application of computational approaches and visualization methods to supercomputing research. This includes digital simulation and advanced computation and all aspects of high-performance computing and scientific modeling and simulation as well as graphics, visualization, informatics, and high-performance network communications. Interns work with faculty members and their research groups on projects using high-performance computing environments to address problems in science and engineering.
