We are inviting applications for internships in the Solar Car Challenge. We would like to have representatives from all across the country. Interns must have participated in at least one previous Challenge.

Interns are involved with a variety of aspects in running the race. All types of people are needed to make this race a success -- technical experts, public relations personnel, and everyone in between. Before the race begins, interns gather together for a Pre-Race Session, where they discuss rules, logistics, and the future of the race. During the race, interns serve as team judges and perform other logistical tasks.

Interns arrive in Dallas for the Pre-Race Session. They must stay for the entire race session. See the calendar for more information. We will pay for all interns' expenses during the race, and a $500 stipend for transportation.
