The University of Colorado invites undergraduates to apply for a paid summer research experience for highly motivated students interested in solar and space physics. Students will come to Boulder, Colorado for 10 weeks to work on a research project with a mentor. The topic areas span the field of solar and space physics, from instrument hardware to data analysis to modeling of the Sun, the Sun-Earth system, the near-Earth environment, or the heliosphere.
About LASP (http://lasp.colorado.edu/):
The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at the University of Colorado Boulder (CU) began in 1948, a decade before NASA. We are the world's only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight planets and Pluto.

5. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI)
6. Northwest Research Associates (NWRA)
7. Space Science Institute (SSI)
8. Atmospheric & Space Technology Research Associates (ASTRA)
