The summer internship program (SIP) of the MINT center offers international graduate students the opportunity to participate in materials research projects during the summer months. Students will work on a specific research project in close collaboration with faculty, post doctorates and other graduate students. Seminars, lunches and other social events will be organized to enable students to broaden their knowledge and socialize with their interdisciplinary collaborators at the MINT center. The program will provide housing and support for travel expenses (up to $1000). The priority deadline for applications is February 28th, however we will continue to accept applications after this date until all positions are filled. The 2019 SIP program will start on June 4th and will end on July 27th. Please note that the MINT center will only be able to provide student housing during the aforementioned time period, housing costs outside this time period cannot be covered.
