Discovery Park Undergraduate Research Internship program seeking faculty spring semester proposals

Proposals are now being accepted from Purdue faculty on the West Lafayette campus for Discovery Park’s Undergraduate Research Internship (DURI) program. DURI supports faculty-led teams of undergraduates to investigate problems in the strategic areas of global security, global health and global sustainability.

Faculty project proposals for the Spring 2022 semester should focus on these thematic areas. Each project should involve two or more distinct academic disciplines (represented by faculty from different departments and ideally colleges) and up to two undergraduate students. No faculty cost-sharing will be required.

Interested faculty can submit abstracts for individual projects at the DURI website, using their Purdue career account credentials to log on. The deadline for proposal submissions is Oct. 11.

From Oct. 25 to Nov. 12, undergraduate students may apply for one project. Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections. The deadline for selecting students will be Nov. 24. 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 $1,000 spring semester fellowship from the DURI program.

More information is available on the DURI website. Faculty should direct any questions about the program to Peter Bermel at Students with questions about the program should contact Kate Mitsch at
