This off-term internship support can be used to help students gain work experience, advance research skills or become familiar with a new area of information technology, including topics as diverse as:
- the use of computational thinking in academic disciplines (i.e., Sciences, Social Sciences, Humanities, and the Arts) or in real-world applications.
- the impact of information technology on security and privacy throughout society.
- the relation of information technology to socio-economic forces, cultural values and political influences.
ISTS and Neukom will consider awarding funds for external unpaid internships during an off-term. Interns are eligible for up to $4,000 in funding to cover living expenses and travel, depending on the availability of funds. Awards may be offered for less than the original amount requested by the student.
