Undergrads: Internships Info Session this week – $5K Innovation Internships for Summer quarter

Information sessions about the CoMotion Mary Gates Innovation Scholars internship program will be held this week!

THURSDAY, 3/30, 3:30-4:20 PM, MGH 171

FRIDAY, 3/31, 12:30-1:20 PM, MGH 171

This is a unique program in which students can spend Summer quarter working as interns with UW faculty-led start-up companies, seeking to transfer research to real-world applications.  Participants will build upon their strengths and learn about intellectual property and entrepreneurship through hands-on teamwork with an emerging company.

Each Innovation Scholar will receive a $5,000 scholarship and earn course credit.

Ten different internships are available this year, across a broad spectrum of engineering, health sciences, and natural sciences.  Students with backgrounds in art, biology, botany, business, chemistry, civil & environmental engineering, computer science & engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, microbiology, linguistics, neuroscience, physics, public health, psychology, speech & hearing sciences, statistics, visual communications, web design and more should apply.

Students from all three campuses are invited to apply online by Monday, April 10.  All internships will be at/near the Seattle campus.  Only degree-seeking UW undergraduate students are eligible (students graduating in Summer 2017 or later are eligible; Spring quarter graduates are not eligible).

This program is made possible by CoMotion and the Mary Gates Endowment for Students.
