Hey guys, is anyone applying to the UCSC science internship program for this summer? I’ve got an application almost done but I doubt the worth of the program, so I’m not sure if I should submit (a 60 dollar fee!!). It’s a whopping 4k for a program not even in person.
I have another research opportunity lined up for the summer, free of charge, but I don’t know if it counts as an internship and it’s not part of an official program like SIP. I’m sure either will be very fulfilling to my experience so I’m basing my choice on which is worth more prestige…UCSC is really expensive but it’s long, organized, and an official program compared to the other research plan I have.
Does anyone have experiences from last year? I think it was virtual for 2020, right? How did it go? Was it worth it?
