Advanced undergraduate students in Science (Physics, Chemistry, and related areas) and Engineering having reached at least 75% of their career, or recently graduated professionals in these same careers
Summer scholarships are one-month internships in which participants carry out a research work in one of the labs at the CAB, usually in February. During the first two days, participants visit the laboratories and are given the possible work lines. The internship finishes with the submission of a final report and the presentation of a poster.
Scholarships are granted by CNEA to cover national land transport to and from Bariloche, accommodation, and food during the stay. Foreign students need to cover transportation to Argentina from other sources. Generally, 15 students are selected from around 100 applicants, Argentinean or from other Latin American countries.
The topics tackled during the internships cover different research lines of the Physics and Engineering Labs at CAB.

Background and recent schools
The José A. Balseiro Schools can be traced back to the IB-CAB Schools that started working in 1986, in which introductory courses on Solid State Physics were given for 20 Argentinean students. In 1994, students from other Latin American countries and Spain participated. In 2005, the school acquired its current name and the list of possible topics was expanded.
Since 1995 to date, the Schools included the following topics :
