Applications are being accepted for the 2014 ICPSR Summer Undergraduate Internship Program, an intensive, 10-week program (mid-June through mid-August) in Ann Arbor, Michigan, for students interested in social science research.
The ICPSR summer internship program provides undergraduate students with a research experience that includes supported exploration of a research query from start to finish, data management training, and focused methodological education in quantitative research. This prepares interns for capstone or senior thesis projects, graduate school, and/or research-based employment opportunities. The students, under the supervision of faculty mentors, develop a research question, perform a literature search and review, complete data analysis, and report findings in a poster; learn good data management processes and research practices with a research process mentor; and attend classes at the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods.
To complete the application form through the ICPSR online application portal, students must answer a few questions; upload a cover letter, resume, and list of relevant courses; and provide contact information for two recommending college faculty or staff members, or employer references. The recommendations must be completed through the ICPSRrecommendation portal.
The deadline for all materials is January 31, 2014.
