NSF-Supported Summer Internships for Undergraduates

The Center for Language and Speech Processing at the Johns Hopkins University is seeking outstanding members of the current junior class to participate in a summer workshop on language engineering from June 23 to August 15, 2008. The eight-week workshop provides a stimulating intellectual environment and we hope it will encourage students to eventually pursue graduate study in the field of human language technologies.

The summer workshop provides: * An opportunity to explore an exciting new area of research * A two-week tutorial on speech and language technology * Mentoring by an experienced researcher * A $5,000 stipend and $2,520 towards per diem expenses * Private furnished accommodation for the duration of the workshop * Travel expenses to and from the workshop venue

Applications must be received by WEDNESDAY, MARCH 5, 2008, and should include the name of a faculty nominator who would be willing to serve as a reference if asked. Apply online here:

Applicants are evaluated only on relevant skills, employment experience, past academic record, and the strength of letters of recommendation. No limitation is placed on the undergraduate major. Women and minorities are encouraged to apply.
