Important undergraduate research deadlines

Dear undergraduate students,  The undergraduate newsletter for late January is linked  here .   Right now, late January, is THE time for deadlines for undergraduate research programs.  A few have passed, but most have not, such as Haas Scholars ($13,800 to conduct research in ANY major), SURF ($4,000-$6000 to carry out research), and many others. If you read the newsletter and make a plan soon, you can catch some really great opportunities!  The newsletter actually goes out weekly, but it is sent to advisors (who forwarded it to you) monthly.  If you want to make sure to not miss out on any late-breaking news, consider signing up for the listserv  here.

We are now accepting applications for the Sage Corps summer and fall 2018 global entrepreneurship programs in 19 cities around the world.  As a Sage Corps fellow, you don’t have to choose between a professional experience or cultural immersion. With us, you get the best of both worlds. We take care of all the logistics so that you can focus on having the experience of a lifetime. You’ll work alongside entrepreneurs at a global startup and complete projects that directly impact the growth of a business. Past Sage Corps interns have built a supply chain for a surfing startup in Sydney, a prosthetic leg in Santiago, and a new algorithm for a FinTech startup in London. In addition to navigating an intercultural work environment, you’ll live in your program city like a local. That means that you’ll have plenty of time to explore all that your program city has to offer, participate in cultural excursions with your cohort, and travel on the weekends. Sounds pretty great, right
