Research Internship Program

The WISP Research Internship Program, established in 1991, matches undergraduate women with faculty mentors in paid, part-time research internships in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines. WISP internships provide early hands-on research experience and the opportunity for mentoring from a research scientist or faculty member. Internships last two terms (winter and spring) and interns present their work at the Karen E. Wetterhahn Science Symposium in May.


  • First year women: any STEM discipline (including Psychological & Brain Sciences)
  • Sophomore women: chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, and physics/astronomy (areas where women are most under-represented)
