Summer Research Internships (SURI)

Summer Research Internships 2022

The Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering at Arizona State University offers paid summer research internships for qualified U.S. citizens and permanent residents, and volunteer positions for international students. Students will gain engineering research experience at a top research university and an in-depth understanding of what it would be like to pursue a PhD degree.  Participants will work under the mentorship of faculty members from various engineering programs to pursue 8-week-long research projects from  May 25th to July 22rd, 2022. Available research projects include both in-person and virtual options.

Paid summer research internships for graduate students

Students across all branches of engineering are welcome to apply. Students between the junior and senior years of their undergraduate degree and those pursuing Master’s degrees who are interested in earning a PhD will be given highest consideration.

In addition to valuable research experience, SURI participants attend guest lectures presented by industry partners and top research faculty, engage in social and networking activities, and benefit from other support services and resources designed to prepare them for further research and study at the Masters and PhD level.

Qualified U. S. citizens and permanent residents selected for the summer internship will earn a US$5000 stipend. 

Non-US citizens are welcome and encouraged to apply and if selected will work on a volunteer basis (no stipend provided).  Non-US citizens who participate in in-person research projects will be charged a program fee of US$1,000.  Non-U. S. citizens who are selected for in-person projects must be eligible to obtain work authorization or be eligible for the J-1 visa and able to support themselves financially and provide their own travel.

All participants in an in-person internship will be offered housing at the ASU Tempe Campus for an estimated cost of US$2200* for the 8-week program.

*This is only an estimate at this time. Actual costs will be announced at the time program acceptance decisions are made.

Application Opens: December 1, 2021

How to Apply:

Individuals interested in applying should prepare to submit the following materials through the SURI online application system

  • Completed online application
  • A resume/curriculum vitae
  • A copy of your transcript (official or unofficial)
  • A brief statement describing your interest in participating in SURI which may include your research interests, any relevant research, academic, or work experience, your goals and how SURI will help you achieve them (up to 500 words):

Application Deadline: February 1, 2022

SURI Application is now closed. Please consider applying for Summer 2023.

For any questions about the program or the application, please reach out to FultonSchools@asu.edu.
