ICPSR (Inter-University Consortium for Political and Social Research) Summer Undergraduate Internship program students, under the supervision of faculty mentors, develop a social-sciences 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. This program is great preparation for social-sciences capstone or senior thesis projects, graduate school, and/or research-based employment opportunities.
Applications are due January 31, 2015 – application requirements and more details about the program are available here.
