URIPs are open to all Tech undergraduates who are interested in engaging in a research experience in a faculty member’s laboratory.
Awards of up to $1,920 are available to fund student researchers and are paid at an hourly rate. The Pavlis Honors College will provide $960 of this award with the expectation that the faculty mentor will match this amount. Applications will open in the spring.
Award recipients will conduct a research project under the guidance of a Michigan Tech faculty mentor during the regular academic year (September-March).
Internship recipients are encouraged to attend any research-related events or workshops sponsored by the Library.
Internship recipients are required to present their research at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) in March (Friday of Preview Day Weekend)
Funding for the Undergraduate Research Internship Program is provided by the Portage Health Foundation and the DeVlieg Foundation.
