NSF REU Programs
FYI, some folks asked about summer opportunities. The NSF REU (Research Experience for Undergraduates) program is designed for undergraduate students,
but you might inquire whether you can "volunteer" to work with the undergrads.
The details are on the NSF website at:
https://www.nsf.gov/crssprgm/reu/
(Or just Google "NSF REU")
ElectronIon Collider (EIC)
