The UConn-TIP Bioscience & STEM Summer Research Intern Program provides mentored summer research internships in University of Connecticut Technology Incubation Program (TIP) companies. TIP companies are pursuing R&D in biotechnology, engineering, chemistry, computer sciences, and more. Internships can involve research in the laboratory as well as in business-related research.
The program will place interns in TIP companies at Storrs, Farmington, and Avery Point TIP locations in summer 2014. The 10 week-long internships will begin May 27 and end Aug 1. Interns will receive a stipend of $3,200.
The program is accepting applications from UConn undergraduate students and recent UConn graduates (within 6 months of graduation) who are Connecticut residents. International students are not eligible to apply. The program is open to all majors including STEM as well as Business fields. The application deadline is February 24. Early application is recommended.
Interns will be selected based on academic qualifications, research experience, and interest. Interns will attend a weekly seminar series, and will present the results of their summer project at a TIP Research Symposium, and at UConn’s Frontiers in Undergraduate Research.
Support for the program is provided by TIP host companies and participating UConn partners including the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, the School of Engineering, the School of Business, the McNair Scholars Program with the Center for Academic Programs , the UCHC Health Careers Opportunity Program, the Office of Undergraduate Research, and the Center for Career Development.
