DUIRI projects announced for summer 2024; student applications now being accepted

Discovery Park District at Purdue 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 at the DUIRI website

The student application deadline is March 4. Faculty project supervisors will review all eligible student applications before making final selections, and 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 projects will be co-funded by Purdue’s Institute for a Sustainable Future (ISF). These interdisciplinary projects promote collaborative sustainability research in areas including water challenges, environmental stressors, climate science, environmental justice, renewable energy and sustainable communities. Student researchers for these ISF projects will have additional engagement with the institute during and beyond the summer internship.   

The DUIRI program provides opportunities for undergraduate students to work with researchers 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.
