Real-World Research Experiences for Undergraduates
at the National Weather Center







Students who participate in our 10-week research program during the summer conduct a research project with help from one or more mentors from the National Weather Center partner organizations (follow this link), as well as related organizations on the University Research Campus. Mentors commonly come from:

Our interns conduct research on such topics as: severe weather, tornadoes, societal impacts of weather, numerical weather prediction models, atmospheric radiation, climatological studies, dryline studies, and much more. They also prepare and present papers reporting the results of their research, with lots of help and coaching from us on how to do this.

We also build research skills through workshops, take tours, go on field trips, and hear seminars on all kinds of topics in order to have as well-rounded an experience as possible. Our goal is to help participants decide whether a career in research is for them.

We provide:

  • furnished housing in modern campus apartments,
  • a travel allowance to get and from to Norman, Oklahoma,
  • a travel allowance to attend a professional conference,
  • and a fellowship stipend (we pay you to be here).

This Research Experiences for Undergraduates program at the National Weather Center is funded by a grant from the National Science Foundation to the Center for Analysis and Prediction of Storms.
