Dear UT Undergraduates:

With registration for next semester coming up in a few weeks, let me tell
you about an exciting internship course.

Are you thinking about whether graduate school is in your future?  Are you
uncertain about what it would be like to be a graduate student and what
academic program may be suited best to your interests and career goals?

If your answer to these questions is yes, you may wish to consider
undertaking the Intellectual Entrepreneurship (IE) “Pre-Graduate School
Internship.”  This internship is open to students in all UT
colleges/schools and departments.  You may earn one, two or three hours of
academic credit (CMS 164M/264M/364M) by participating in the internship.

Attached is a flyer describing the Pre-Graduate School Internship.  In
addition, you may read more about this program (including FAQ’s, examples
of internship activities and an easy to complete internship contract) on
the web:

A wonderful UT web feature about this program is at:

If after examining these materials you have questions, please feel free to

NOTE: Because of the generosity of several UT deans, undergraduates who do
their pre-grad internship in programs in the following colleges will be
eligible to receive travel grants to help cover part of the cost of
attending an academic conference (with their grad mentor)– Law, Public
Affairs, Communication, Engineering, Liberal Arts, Pharmacy, Business,
Social Work, Education, Natural Sciences, Fine Arts.
