Subject: summer internships through ICSI
Organization: International Computer Science Institute, Berkeley, CA, U.S.A.
Distribution: usa

The International Computer Science Institute (ICSI) is soliciting
applications for their student summer internship program in Europe.
The program is open to advanced graduate students in computer
science at American universities.

Applicants don't need to be U.S. citizens OR permanent residents of the
U.S. to be eligible for the program. The selection process is soley based
on merit and works roughly as follows: an application is submitted to ICSI
where an initial selection takes place. ICSI does not have special
application forms for the summer internship program. A cover letter
stating the applicants intentions, transcripts, and one or two letters of
recommendation is sufficient. It would also be very helpful if the
applicant could provide a short proposal stating what he/she is interested
in and the particular fields he/she would want to work in. The selected
applications will be forwarded to those participating research labs that
best match the applicants scientific interest and background. Depending
on the applicants interest, background, and research proposal her/his
application might be send to several of the research labs. It is the
research labs that make the final decision.

Current sponsor nations are Germany, Italy and Switzerland. ICSI is *not*
able to support or process applications for internships in non-sponsor

Graduate students which have been invited by research labs in ICSI sponsor
nations due to their own initiative or existing collaborations can apply
for travel grants. However, ICSI will not be able to provide financial
support beyond travel grants.

Financial support provided by the hosting research lab is approximately
$1800 per month for 3 month while ICSI provides travel grants up to $1500.

Submit applications including at least one letter of recommendation,
a list of completed course work, and a statement of intent to:

International Computer Science Institute
-Summer Internship Program
1947 Center Street, Suite 600
Berkley, CA 94704

Note: ICSI is only a clearinghouse for summer internship applications.
ICSI is not able to answer question concerning specific research
activities within participating research labs. In the past summer interns
have been working in such areas as computer vision, expert systems,
knowledge representation, natural language processing, software
engineering, software tool development, etc..
