Interns work with a mentor to conduct an independent research project, participate in training and professional development programs, and present their results at a public symposium.

Participants need to be U.S. citizens who are enrolled as an undergraduate in fall 2018. They will receive a stipend of $5,500, in addition to assistance travelling to and from Chicago.
