Wilke Undergraduate Research Internship Program Fall 2019
Q. What is the Wilke Undergraduate Research Internship Program?
A. The Wilke Undergraduate Research Internship Program (referred to as the Wilke Program) is a competitive program that pairs a faculty research project with a student partner. Student partners also enroll in a 1 credit seminar (SCLA 49100 Wilke Undergrad Research Internship) which introduces them to basic practices in research and assists students in creating a poster to present their research.
A. Submit an application through the OURConnect Portal. An application guide and walkthrough for accepting an undergraduate research project will be sent after the faculty selects a student partner.
A. The expectation is normally in the range of 3 to 5 hours per week per credit hour, similar to the time required for lab or studio courses. You should discuss your expectations with your faculty mentor.
A. Each student partner participating in Wilke Program must complete* SCLA 49100 Wilke Undergrad Research Internship, attend workshops hosted by the Office of Undergraduate Research, and present a poster at the Purdue University Research Conference in April. If the student is graduating in December, a smaller fall conference is available. For additional information regarding SCLA 49100, please contact Holly Tittle-Hudson.
Q. I worked on a Wilke Program project last semester, do I need to take the class and present each time?
A. You will receive $500 per project per semester. This amount is awarded through the Division of Financial Aid and the Bursar’s Office. Additional questions about timing of scholarship awards should be directed to Holly Tittle-Hudson.
A. You may only participate in ONE Wilke Program project per semester.
