After the application deadline has passed, faculty mentors will receive all applications for their internships to review and will arrange to interview their top candidates. Check your e-mail regularly and respond promptly to interview requests, even if you wish to decline the interview. Do NOT contact individual faculty or their departments about your application.
If you are selected for the internship, you will work with your faculty mentor to establish an internship contract that outlines all the expectations of the internship. This contract will be used to evaluate the success of the internship. The contract will include:
- Project goals (overall and student-specific)
- The amount of work per week
- Reporting requirements
- Confidentiality rights
- Intellectual property ownership rights
- Authorship rights
- Training requirements
The signed contract should be be submitted to the Undergraduate Research Coordinator by the end of the first week of the internship.
