The NSF EPSCoR CPU2AL program sponsors a 10-week Alabama Plasma Internship Program (ALPIP) for undergraduate students pursuing degrees in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics across the southeastern U.S. The program provides students with nine-week quality research experiences at Alabama Institutions and one week of lectures, laboratory experiments, and short classes in plasma science given by Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL) in New Jersey. Research projects seek to understand, predict, and control plasma processes and interactions and to use low-temperature plasmas to develop new technologies for aerospace, manufacturing, medicine, agriculture, and food safety.
Students receive a 10-week stipend of $5,500, paid housing and travel during the internship, and a $2000 travel allowance to present the internship results at a conference after the internship.
Areas of research: Physics, Space Science, Agriculture, Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Chemistry, Microbiology, and more.

About NSF EPSCoR CPU2AL
The CPU2AL project involves a partnership comprising nine universities and a research corporation in Alabama and is funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) through an Established Program to Stimulate Competitive Research (EPSCoR). The project shares resources and leverage partnerships among Alabama institutions and industries to strengthen the research capacity and to build and train an inclusive workforce in plasma science and technology. The CPU2AL NSF EPSCoR program administers a broad range of student programs to science and engineering students in Alabama partner institutions. The ultimate goal of the program is to engage a diverse, educated, and skilled pool of scientists and engineers to promote long-term relationships between students, academia, and industry to enhance the Alabama workforce.
The American Association of Physics Teachers (AAPT) is a partner in the AIP Career Network, a collection of online job sites for scientists, engineers, and computing
professionals. Other partners include Physics Today, the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM), American Physical Society (APS Physics), AVS Science and Technology,
IEEE Computer Society, and the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma.
