Now Accepting Student Applications for Summer 2020

Discovery Park has posted new research projects for the Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship’s summer 2020 session. Undergraduate students can visit our Projects page to see the current list of DURI projects and apply for the summer session.

The student application deadline is March 25. 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 April 10.

During the summer, student teams will be responsible for pursuing their research projects, culminating with a poster presentation and one-page abstract/summary of their results. Assuming all requirements are met, each participating student will earn a $4,500 summer term 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.
