March 20: Internship information

Students invited to learn about College of Engineering Summer Fellows Internship
University of Delaware undergraduate students are invited to attend an information session for the College of Engineering Summer Fellows Internship on Tuesday, March 20.
The event will be held at the Venture Development Center, 132 East Delaware Avenue, from 4:30-5 p.m.
Sponsored by the College of Engineering in collaboration with the Horn Program in Entrepreneurship, the program will provide funding for up to six students to explore the process of taking an idea or early-stage prototype from an immature state through to mature plan and perhaps prototype.
The internship runs from June 5 to Aug. 11, and all participants are expected to be available for the full 10-week period. The program is based on campus, with possible travel involved. Each student will receive a stipend of $4,000, with additional resources and funding for materials and prototyping available to teams who need them.
Applicants should form a group with two to four students and converge on a project with the potential to lead to a scalable science or technology invention that addresses a social or environmental need — for example, medical or health care-related devices, clean energy technologies, or technologies for low-resource settings.
Students from any major and year are encouraged to apply, but particular focus will be on students from engineering and business with at least sophomore standing and a 3.0 grade point average.
The information session will also serve as a meet-and-greet for students that have ideas but need to find collaborators. Light snacks will be provided.
To apply, visit the website. The application deadline is noon on March 27.
