IRIS is pleased to announce a second year of funding for it's International Undergraduate Internship in Seismology and Hazards program. This program is designed to create new research and educational opportunities for international undergraduates, and to cultivate long-term partnerships across borders by encouraging collaborative research between IRIS member institutions and international partners. Thus, we invite international undergraduate students, along with their international faculty and US-based mentor to apply for internships to perform seismological research relating to geological hazards. However, it is important to note that this program requires a collaborative arrangment between US and international faculty. Therefore, applications must consist of two separate submissions, coordinated between the mentors (both the US and International) and the international student.
International undergraduate interns are financially supported to:
Support includes a living stipend ($700/week, minus taxes), visa application fees (up to $400), and other consumables (up to $500). Funds to cover these expenses will be managed through a no-overhead grant/award from IRIS to the U.S. host institution. IRIS will also directly cover or reimburse expenses related to travel for the internship and to attend a professional meeting.
