In addition to promoting research, IC² is also a “do” tank that creates programs to have a positive impact on the world.
As the first initiative in this new direction, the institute is partnering with UT’s School of Undergraduate Studies to create the new Home to Texas program, which will provide undergraduates with paid internships with organizations in small cities or rural communities in Texas while having the students engage in experiences to view these communities with new eyes.
This student engagement will provide a valuable resource to organizations while also allowing students to consider contributing to the economy in rural and remote regions after graduation.
Interested students who are in their first or second year of studies at UT Austin should provide information via this link.
Organizations interested in receiving more information or engaging a student from approximately June 3-August 9 should email Debra Dzwonczyk (email@example.com). When possible, organizations should email information related to the student job description, as well as a link to information on the organization.
