GTRI Summer Internship Program Applications Open Through January 29

The GTRI Research Internship Program (GRIP) is accepting student applications for the Summer 2024 session!

Encourage any graduate and undergraduate students you know to apply by visiting and following the posted instructions before the application period closes on January 29.

What’s GRIP?

GRIP is GTRI’s summer internship program for undergraduate and graduate students. Students work full-time for ten weeks from May 28 – August 2.

Students from all accredited U.S. colleges and universities can apply by visiting and following the posted instructions before the application period closes on January 29.

All GRIP projects are posted to the website. Students are invited to review, rank, and select their top three projects. After the application period closes on January 29, GRIP project mentors will conduct phone interviews during the month of February. Once feedback is collected from GRIP project mentors, an algorithm will be used to match students and project mentors to their top choices.

Formal job offers will then be made to selected students at the beginning of March. Selected students will then have 5 business days to accept or reject the formal offer letter. Additional offers may be extended to students at the end of March based on the initial acceptance or refusal from the first group of students. These students will also have 5 business days to either accept or reject. We plan for all final hiring decisions and notifications to students to be completed by the beginning of April.
