The Regional Introduction to Plasma Physics (RIPP) is a 9-week summer internship program for undergraduate students enrolled at institutions across the southeastern U.S. (Alabama, Arkansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, South Carolina, West Virginia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico).
The ultimate goal of the program is to promote long-term relationships between students in the southeastern U.S. with investigators in Alabama. RIPP students will become involved in a summer research project at an FTPP institution for nine weeks. The program will also involve an intensive two-week (half-day) online training activity participating in lectures and short classes in plasma science given by Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL). This week will take place concurrently with the Department of Energy (DOE) Summer Undergraduate Laboratory Internship (SULI) program. In this way, RIPP students will be part of a larger, national plasma science student cohort, learn about opportunities in plasma science, and be exposed to the research environment of the national laboratory for plasma physics.
Available internship locations are The University of Alabama in Huntsville, Auburn University, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, University of South Alabama, Alabama A&M University, Alabama State University.
