Program Description

During this eight week program, the Hugh Edmondson Summer Research Undergraduate Interns will participate in research or work activities eight hours a day, Monday through Friday. The interns are not expected to participate in other part-time work activities or to attend summer school during this 8-week period. Students have to arrange for their own housing and transportation during the internship.


The internship program offers a stipend to the participants on a full-time work basis. The Edmondson Internship offers a $2,000 stipend to each selected undergraduate student of freshmen, sophomore, or junior standing (not the graduating seniors). The interns will work on research or laboratory special projects under direct supervision of a faculty mentor.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • When will I know what my research project will be?
    • As research is a dynamic field, we will not be sure of your project until your internship begins. On orientation day, a round-robin session will be held so that interns and mentors can be matched based on their interest.
  • What will my exact hours be?
    • Generally, interns work Monday thru Friday from 8 am to 5 pm. However, your hours may change based on your mentor’s schedule and projects taking place in the lab.
