Eligible undergraduate and graduate students at Michigan Tech can apply for an eight-week paid research internship in Korea during the summer of 2023. The grant is through the National Science Foundation International Research Experiences for Students (NSF IRES): Interdisciplinary Research in Korea on Applied Smart Systems (IRiKA) program.
The goal of the NSF IRES program is to provide high-quality educational experiences for small groups of U.S. students through active research participation in collaboration with foreign researchers at an international site and provide students with international collaborative research training and a personal network on which to build future collaborations.
IRiKA is a competitive program. The students selected for the Summer 2023 cohort will each receive:
- U.S.-Korea roundtrip airfare and transportation in Korea,
- an eight-week paid research internship in Korea ($500 per week),
- accommodations in Korea, and
- additional research support.
The dates of the internship are June 16 to Aug. 16. Eligible students can find more information and apply through IRiKA’s website. The deadline for Michigan Tech students to apply is tomorrow (Feb. 10).
