CoMotion Mary Gates Innovation Scholars Summer Program

We are pleased to announce a brand new opportunity for UW undergraduate students: the CoMotion Mary Gates Innovation Scholars program!  Students can spend Summer quarter working as interns with UW faculty-led startups, seeking to transfer research to real-world applications.  Participants will build upon their strengths and learn about intellectual property and entrepreneurship through hands-on teamwork with an emerging company.

Each Innovation Scholar will receive a $5,000 award and earn course credit.

Eight different internships are available this year, in fields such as engineering, pain medicine, immunology, biorobotics and user interface design.  Students with backgrounds in programming, graphic design, molecular biology, business, public health, statistics, psychology and more should apply.

WHEN: Summer 2015 (June 22 – August 21)
EARN: $5,000 and course credit
DEADLINE: Monday, April 27 at 5:00 PM

Students from all three campuses are invited to apply.  All internships will be at/near the Seattle campus.  Only degree-seeking UW undergraduate students are eligible (students graduating in Spring 2015 are not eligible; students who will graduate in Summer 2015 or later are eligible).  This program is made possible by CoMotion and the Mary Gates Endowment for Students.
