Formal Undergrad Research Internships

Postby David Taylor » Tue Sep 27, 2011 2:29 pm

I've been doing some reading on various formal, paid summer internship programs available for undergraduate students across the country. I'm curious - who on the forum has taken on an internship experience like this?

Was it a valuable experience? What were the benefits over more informal research experiences (work study, lab assistant, etc.)?
