MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award

Funded by the generosity of the MSUFCU and individual donors, the MSUFCU Internship Opportunity Award provides stipend awards of up to $1,000 each to help cover out-of-pocket expenses related to an unpaid internship. The number of awards will be based on available program funds and demonstrated student interest and need. Contingent awards are available for students who have not accepted an internship offer by the application deadline, but internships must be secured (confirmed) within 10 days of the deadline. (Many awards will be for less than the maximum $1,000 award.) Awards are available for U.S. based internships only (remote internships and micro-internships are eligible for consideration).

The Undergraduate Research Office is excited to launch the Pathway to Research Program<https://urca.msu.edu/learn> for Fall 2021, which is a 5-week staff- and peer-mentored program designed to help students secure a research position in their respective field of interest. Student participants will work with program advisors to accomplish the following outcomes:

* Identify potential research mentors

* Learn how to effectively communicate and interview with potential research mentors

* Secure a research position

All students are welcome to apply, and there are no major or GPA restrictions. We are trying to recruit students from historically excluded populations as well as transfer students.

The program will run two phases with the first cohort beginning in late September and the second cohort in mid-October. Students wishing to participate in the program should complete this survey https://msu.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_a34Dr8Maca0a8ey by September 17.
