Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship Program (DURI)

Now Accepting Student Applications for Fall 2019

Discovery Park has posted new research projects for the Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship’s upcoming Fall 2019 session. Undergraduates can see the current list of DURI projects and apply for the Fall session at our Projects page.

The student application deadline is August 5. Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections. Students will be notified of their acceptance after that date; ideally, by the first day of classes.

During the Fall, student teams will be responsible for pursuing their research projects, culminating with a poster presentation and 1-page abstract/summary of their results. Assuming all requirements are met, each participating student will earn a $1,000 fall semester fellowship from the DURI program.

The DURI program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work with researchers affiliated with Discovery Park on cutting-edge research on challenges in the areas of global security, health, and sustainability. In these projects, solutions will be researched by combining faculty and students with two or more distinct disciplinary strengths.
