Office of Undergraduate Research Student-Initiated Internship Program
OURSIP provides a limited number of grants to Princeton freshmen, sophomores, and juniors who have independently created or secured an unpaid faculty-mentored research internship over the summer. Grants are awarded on a competitive basis to support research experiences that complement the student’s academic interest. OURSIP participants receive a stipend intended to offset the cost of room and board as well as modest internship-related expenses (ex. small equipment and parts, consumable supplies, software, copying costs, and books/journals when not available through the University). Proposed internships must be full-time (not less than 35 hours per week) and for a minimum of eight (8) contiguous weeks to be considered for funding.
The priority application deadline is 11:55 pm, Monday, Feb 27, 2017. Applications received after the priority deadline will be reviewed on a rolling basis until the final application deadline (Apr 3, 2017) or until available funds are depleted (whichever occurs earlier).
