I received the following from the American Association for the Advancement
of Science with a request that it be posted. This is a wonderful
opportunity. Jim

                                              PLEASE POST

                                  AAAS AND IBM ANNOUNCE
                                    SUMMER OPPORTUNITIES
                                STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES
                                PURSUING TECHNICAL FIELDS

The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) is committed
to strengthening the role of professionals with disabilities in the
advancement of technology for all industries. In that spirit, we are
participating in a precedent-setting partnership with IBM. Continually
seeking the brightest minds anywhere, we hope to place qualified students
with disabilities in internships throughout the country. We want to offer
you opportunities to work with people who are transforming the world using
technologies that won't reach the classroom for years.

Take Matt King, for example. When he's not working hard designing database
software for a mobile workstation using computer screen reading equipment
and a braille printer, he is training for paralympic gold. Backed by IBM,
there's little that stands in Matt's way.

Think about it. An internship at IBM can get you where you really want to
be - up close with the hottest industry-advancing projects on the planet.
You'll be amazed at how quickly we'll start applying your skills. In one
summer, you can get more real-world experience than most students get in
four years.

PROGRAM TIME PERIOD: Summer, 1997 10-12 weeks

There may be opportunities for successive summer internships and potential
placement upon graduation.

ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS: Majoring in a technical field, i.e.:
                        Computer Science
                        Physical Sciences
Provide us with a copy of your resume, current GPA and contact information.

IBM is committed to creating a diverse environment and proud to be an equal
opportunity employer. This program is open to U.S. citizens or nationals;
permanent residents, refugees, asylees or those authorized to work under the
amnesty provision of U.S. immigration law.
