Applications are Open for Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) at Michigan Tech

The Pavlis Honors College is accepting applications to the Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) for the 2021-2022 academic year.

The internship program will run from September through mid-April and is open to any undergraduate student on campus with an identified faculty research mentor. Faculty and students who are already working together are welcome to apply.

The Pavlis Honors College will provide $800 in funding for the student intern, with the expectation that faculty will provide equivalent matching funds to be dispensed concurrently, resulting in a total of $1,600 paid at a rate of $10/hour over the course of the internship. Faculty may make use of research funds, IRAD, startup packages or consult their chairs, deans, or center/institute management to identify the source of their match.

Details regarding the application process can be found here. The deadline to submit applications is Friday, April 9. Faculty will need to supply a letter of support as part of the application package. If you have questions about the submission process, please email urip@mtu.edu.

The Undergraduate Research Internship Program is made possible with the support of the Pavlis Honors College and by generous donations from the Portage Health Foundation and the DeVlieg Foundation.
