Information about the internship program
- First-year women can apply in all STEM disciplines
- Sophomore women can apply in STEM disciplines with female under-representation nationally (chemistry, computer science, engineering, math, and physics)
- Interns work 6-10 hours/week during winter and spring terms
- Sophomore interns may participate for one or both of these terms depending on their D-plans
- Interns present research posters at the Karen E. Wetterhahn Science Symposium in May
- Interns receive an hourly wage up to a $2000 maximum for two terms
- WISP can fund a limited number of students per year (generally one per faculty mentor)
- Faculty who have funding available can support their own intern(s) so that more students can participate
- Students who arrange to work with a faculty mentor independent of the matching process are not eligible for WISP funding but may participate in the program if the faculty mentor has funds to pay their wages
