Below are testimonials from previous AFRL Scholars that provide insights into the internship experience:


“I have a great respect for the Scholars program, [and] I would tell students interested in the AFRL Scholars program that it is a great opportunity. I was only involved in the Scholars program this last summer, but I wish I would have participated in it years before...  The Scholars program allows students to get a glimpse of the important role AFRL researchers play in service and protection of our nation.” – Daniel Osuna, Phillips Scholar 2013


“Actually most of what I picked up from AFRL has been more useful in my work here [at NASA Wallops Flight Facility] than anything I learned in school, so I’m really grateful for my Scholar background.” – Sally Smith, Space Scholar 2012-2013


“The greatest benefit to participating in the Scholars Program was being given the freedom to approach my work however I wanted. It gave me a chance to take a step back and apply…techniques that would have otherwise been dismissed as ‘out of focus’ for the problem at hand.” – Robert Sivilli, Space Scholar 2012
