Through funding from Intel and the Semiconductor Research Corporation, the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program provides funding for undergraduate students to engage in cutting-edge research in science, engineering and technology. Alumni of this program, known as SRC Fellows, gain access to Intel internships, as well as internships at national laboratories such as Brookhaven National Laboratory. SRC Fellows are also invited to present their research at TechCon, a national conference that brings together industry representatives and faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students to share cutting edge research related to the Semi-Conductor Industry.
SRC UROP will provide undergraduates a $4000 stipend for a 10 week fellowship to work under the supervision of University of Michigan faculty members in science and technology fields related to the semi-conductor computer industry. Participants will attend a variety of workshops, journal clubs facilitated by postdoctoral scholars, graduate student panels, lunches and fieldtrips in collaboration with other summer engineering and technology programs funded by the National Science Foundation and the College of Engineering. In addition, the University of Michigan’s Rackham Graduate School offers participants in all summer programs a series of workshops on attending and financing graduate school and writing personal statements.
Applicants should have a strong interest in research and a desire to seek advanced degrees in science, engineering and technology fields related to the semi-conductor industry including electrical engineering and computer science, chemical and material sciences engineering, physics and chemistry. Intel and SRC are very interested in recruiting diverse students to this program with a special focus on historically underrepresented students, women, first generation college students and students from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds.
This fellowship is open to current undergraduate students attending the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor Campus. Students may not be enrolled in more than one spring or one summer course while participating in the fellowship program. Enrollment in spring/summer courses is highly discouraged for program participants. International students are not eligible for our summer fellowships funded by HHMI or SRC.
