Additional Information: The American Physical Society and IBM co-sponsor a research internship program for undergraduate women. The goal is to encourage women students to pursue graduate studies in science and engineering.

The application process consists of an online application, which is submitted through an IBM server; two letters of recommendation, which are to be emailed directly from the recommenders to the internship chair; and an official transcript, which, if possible, is emailed to the internship chair from the registrar's officer, or if that is not possible is submitted to IBM via postal mail.
