$5,000 Innovation Internships – info session 3/9

Information sessions about the CoMotion Mary Gates Innovation Scholars internship program will be held today and next month as a topic for Scholarship Fridays!

FRIDAY, 3/9, 1:30-2:20 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.

Approximately ten different internships will be 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.

The application will open in early March; the deadline is Monday, April 9.  All internships will be at/near the Seattle campus.  Only degree-seeking UW undergraduate students are eligible (students graduating in Summer 2018 or later are eligible; Spring quarter graduates are not eligible).

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