Penn Student Government Public Service Fellowship

The Penn Student Government Public Service Fellowship seeks to shift the culture at the University of Pennsylvania around public service by emboldening students to pursue internships, projects, and eventually careers in the field. It aims to expand accessibility to public service opportunities for undergraduates. 

Students may either apply to an existing internship or coordinate an internship of their choice with a non-profit. All internships must be associated with a social impact, non-profit organization, or local, state, or, federal government agency. 

Paul and Kathleen Barthmaier Award

The Paul and Kathleen Barthmaier Award has been established by Kathleen M. Barthmaier (Wharton ’03) to provide financial support to assist with travel expenses related to intellectually enriching undergraduate research or fellowship experiences. While priority will be given to internationally focused projects, proposals focused on domestic (based in the United States) issues will also be considered. Grants will be awarded up to $2,000 depending on the needs of the project.

Student Exhibition Internship

The Penn Museum offers paid internships to three undergraduate students at Penn to work with Museum staff and create a small exhibition. The year-long internship focuses on the planning, development, design, fabrication, and installation of a small exhibition featured in the Penn Museum. Interns will learn first-hand about the curatorial, content development, administrative, and design aspects of staging an exhibition in a large museum. After the exhibition’s opening, students will implement educational programs and events for the Museum’s public and academic audiences.

H+U+D Mellon Undergraduate Research Fellows

The initiative in Humanities, Urbanism, and Design (H+U+D) at the University of Pennsylvania is a ten-year project funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to foster critical and integrative consideration of the relationship between the humanities and the design professions in the analysis and shaping of the built environment. Under the renewed grant (beginning in 2108), the initiative takes “The Inclusive City” as its theme, focusing on issues of inclusivity and diversity.

NNCI Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Nanotechnology

NNCI Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) Program in Nanotechnology

Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) programs are an excellent way for undergraduates to become acquainted with scientific research and graduate student life. REU programs typically consist of an intensive 10 week summer research experience at a university different than your own. Most research centers sponsor REU-like programs as part of their education and outreach efforts.

Penn Biomedical Graduate Studies Summer Undergraduate Internship Program

The University of Pennsylvania Summer Undergraduate Internship Program (SUIP) provides an intense research experience to students interested in graduate study in the biomedical and biological sciences. The program has been in existence since 1993. Approximately 30 college students from across the US participate each year; most are rising juniors and seniors, but occasionally we admit a rising sophomore.
