Undergraduate Research Internship Program (URIP)
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 $1600 are available to fund student researchers and are paid at an hourly rate. The Pavlis Honors College will provide $800 of this award with the expectation that the faculty mentor will match this amount. Program requests for applications are announced in early-mid September with applications due October 2, 2017.
Award recipients will conduct a research project under the guidance of a Michigan Tech faculty mentor during the regular academic year (October-April).
Internship recipients are required to:
- Attend a minimum of 3 research-related workshops
- Present their research at the annual Undergraduate Research Symposium (URS) on March 23, 2018
Funding for the Undergraduate Research Internship Program is provided by the Portage Health Foundation and the Pavlis Honors College.
