Program Information

The African American Studies and Research Center (AASRC) and Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) are currently recruiting Purdue students for a new summer research initiative in Black Studies. The African American Studies and Research Center Undergraduate Summer Research Internship is a 6-8 week program that places up to 5 students into paid internships. Students will work with staff professionals to explore, process, and organize expanding collections detailing all facets of black life and history. Students will also use these collections and experiences to produce their own independent research projects that they will present at conferences on and off-campus in the following Fall and Spring semesters. Students interested in this program may submit applications for multiple available projects. The program supervisors will meet with candidates to discuss specific project specifics and extend offers. Students selected for the internship will earn up to $6,000 to cover housing, summer research stipend, and summer stay tuition.
