Global Research & Internship Program

All students applying to a GRIP placement must attend a GRIP Group Advising Session in order to submit their application. Please do not sign up for an appointment until after you have thoroughly reviewed all GRIP placements for Summer 2019.  Once you have an idea as to the specific placements you are interested in, you may then sign up for a group session. Please be respectful of the fact that these spots are limited. Your appointment will be canceled if you have not identified specific GRIP placements in your appointment sign-up form.

*Do not wait until the last minute to sign up for your advising session, as spots will fill quickly!  Advising sessions will not be available from December 22nd through January 1st, January 5th, or January 6th.  They will be available on a limited basis from January 2nd through January 4th, so please do plan ahead.
