The I2S program aims to:
- Introduce students who have limited experience in research, scholarly, or creative activity
- Generate student interest in inquiry by promoting the acquisition and/or generation of disciplinary knowledge
- Facilitate the intern’s development of techniques and skills within a particular discipline
How are intern request proposals selected for funding?
- Can reasonably be completed by an eligible undergraduate in the time specified
- Represent a wide variety of disciplines,
- Will provide valuable research exposure to students within the college of the faculty mentor, and
- Are from faculty who have not previously had an I2S student.
Projects consisting primarily of routine tasks without a disciplinary educational component will not be funded under this program. It is not the intention of I2S to provide student workers as administrative, logistical, or instructional assistants.
Faculty should NOT name a specific student as the intern in the request; the intention of I2S is to help establish new student-faculty relationships.
