Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP)
The Pavlis Honors College announces the fourth year of the Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP) for the 2018-19 academic year.
URIP 2018-19 applications are due March 28. This differs from the 2017-18 URIP as these applications were due in the Fall of 2017. We have made this change based on feedback from faculty and students.
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 six 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 online. The deadline to submit applications is Wednesday, March 28.
The Undergraduate Research Internship Program is made possible by donations from the Portage Health Foundation and with the support of the Pavlis Honors College.
