Van Andel Research

Van Andel Research Institute | Scientific Report Summer Student Internship Program The VARI student internships were established to provide college students with an opportunity to work with professional researchers in their fields of interest, to use state-of-the-art equipment and technologies, and to learn valuable people and presentation skills. At the completion of the 10-week program, the students summarize their projects in an oral presentation or poster. From January 2008 to March 2009, VARI hosted more than 65 students from 24 colleges and universities in formal summer internships under the Frederik and Lena Meijer Student Internship Program and in other student positions during the year. An asterisk (*) indicates a Meijer student intern.
