UT Austin Paid Internships for Graduating Seniors

Every summer there is a Science and Engineering Apprenticeship Program for high school graduates who will be attending a senior college beginning with the fall semester, and who have applied to UT Austin (preference given to students attending UT Austin, and whose intended majors are electrical, mechanical and aerospace engineering, physics, mathematics, and computer science).

This program, which began in 1982, involves summer employment at Applied Research Laboratories in northwest Austin and provides a "hands-on" introduction to research and development. This is an amazing summer program for graduating seniors, and it gives them the opportunity to earn a competitive salary ($15.13 an hour) for the 12 week program. This prestigious group of students also write reports that are published and widely distributed at the end of their summer term. Please check our website for additional information regarding the program:
The application deadline for this program is March 9th, 2018, so if you have interested students please encourage them to apply soon.

Career Exploration Fair

Round Rock Independent School District is excited to host our 1st Annual District-wide Career Exploration Fair. Our vision for this event is to provide an opportunity for students in grades K-12, with their parents, to explore the various careers that await them in their future. Our goal as educators is to broaden the horizons of the next generation by promoting an atmosphere in which they can explore and gain the knowledge of the vast array of careers available to them. We believe that if we start early with connecting future job seekers with potential employers, we can feel confident that every child in the district has the opportunity to gain the knowledge, skills, and the confidence they need to ensure successful futures. We would like to take this opportunity to invite you and your child to join us on March 5, 2018 at Round Rock High School from 6pm-8pm.

In addition, if you would be willing to host a free booth, please complete the brief registration form using the link below. We desire for this fair to be an exploratory event for our students and ask that, if possible, you bring items that allow the students to engage in a hands-on experience of your career field. If you have any questions, feel free to contact LaShanda Lewis, Coordinator of Counseling Services for Round Rock ISD at 512-464-6177.
