Summer 2024: Now Accepting Student Applications

Discovery Park District has posted new research projects for the Discovery Undergraduate Interdisciplinary Research Internship’s summer 2024 session. Undergraduates can see the current list of DUIRI projects and apply for the summer session through March 4. Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections. Students will be notified of their acceptance after that date.

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 $5,000 summer term scholarship from the DUIRI program.

This summer, several students will be co-funded by Purdue’s Institute for a Sustainable Future (ISF). and the Lilly Purdue Research Center (LPRC). Student researchers for ISF and LPRC affiliated projects will have additional engagement with those entities during the summer internship. The projects will list “ISF” or “LPRC” in the project title.
