Undergrads invited to apply for research opportunities by Oct. 7

The Delaware Environmental Institute (DENIN) is now accepting applications for up to 15 paid undergraduate research internships focused on environmental topics during the 2016-17 academic year. The purpose of the DENIN Environmental Scholars Program is to provide interested students with a sustained research experience over the academic year. Internships will begin Nov. 1 and will be carried out during the fall, winter and spring semesters.

The fall and spring semesters are a part-time commitment, while Winter Session is considered a full-time commitment for five weeks. Interns will receive a stipend of $3,000 and present the results of their work at a symposium in May 2017.

University of Delaware undergraduates from any major may apply; however, the focus of the research must be environmentally relevant.
