Michigan Tech URIP Applications Due March 28

The Pavlis Honors College reminds faculty that URIP 2018-19 applications are due March 28.

There are two tracks for faculty mentors to consider:

  • Faculty in Health-Related Fields are invited to identify an undergraduate research intern with any amount of prior experience – Portage Health Foundation Scholars
  • Faculty in any discipline are invited to identify an undergraduate intern that is relatively new to research or scholarship (less than 6 months) – Pavlis Young Investigators

The internship program is open to any undergraduate student on campus. Faculty are welcome to apply with students with whom they are already working.

The program consists of a 20-week internship (mid-September through mid-March) as well as professional development activities centered on academic research and scholarship.

The Pavlis Honors College will provide $800 in funding for the student intern, with the expectation that faculty will provide matching funds to be dispensed concurrently, resulting in a total of $1,600 (or $10/hr for 8 hours per week for a period of 20 weeks).

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 Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) application process can be found here.

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

Government Internships Available for Summer 2018

Have you ever wondered how our government works? Do you want to make a difference in public policy? Then you may be interested in a government internship.

Internships provide an individual with a monitored or supervised work or service experience where the individual has intentional learning goals and reflects actively on what he or she is learning throughout the experience. These learning goals can include: academic learning, career development, skill development and personal development. Federal or State internship programs are available to students across a wide variety of disciplines while gaining experience in government, politics and international relations.

Applications are being accepted now for Senate and House Washington DC Offices. Federal agencies such as NASA, NSF, DOJ, DOE and others are also accepting applications.

In addition, there are multiple academic/internship programs available in DC and internships through the State of Michigan.

If interested, learn more online. Summer internship deadlines are quickly approaching.
