Applications are now being taken for the 2013 ICPSR Summer Undergraduate Internship Program, an intensive, ten-week program for undergraduate students interested in social science research.
The NSF-funded program matches students with mentors at ICPSR, and supports exploration of a research question from start to finish -- including literature searches, data analyses, and creation of conference-ready posters summarizing students' research findings.
Applications are now being taken through an on-line application portal. Two letters of recommendation are required, and can also be sent over the Web. The deadline is January 31, 2013.
For examples of research projects that 2012 interns completed, see these videos.
