The Great Lakes Research Consortium offers two types of internships. The first is a local internship program that attempts to match students with researchers looking for student help. Requirements vary by position and often occur in the summer months. Faculty members interested in advertising internship positions through the GLRC website and newsletters should prepare a short description of the duties and responsibilities and send it to the GLRC office.

The second internship type provides matching funds through the GLRC. To qualify for GLRC matching funds, the position must meet the following criteria:

  • The intern position must be filled with a student from a GLRC member institution other than the faculty member's home campus.
  • The host faculty member must provide a 50% matching support. This can be through state, Federal, private or institutional funding.
  • GLRC funds cannot exceed $3,000 and are usually provided after invoicing by your local research foundation and verification of the matching support. For more information, you may wish to contact the GLRC Director at early in the hiring process.

GRLC faculty are encouraged to advertise other job opportunities on the GLRC website also. As a service to its student members, the GLRC also lists internship opportunities at locations other than its member institutions. This includes great lakes-related summer REU programs and other opportunities. For more information, contact the GLRC office:
