Internships for Summer 2018 and Opportunities in Computer Science

In Sewanee 

There are multiple sources for internships and summer research at Sewanee;  see the Career & Leadership Development internship pages for complete lists. 

Specific to Computer Science:

  • The McGriff-Bruton Internship in Mathematics and Computer Science is offered each year to fund students working on a project with a professor in our department.
  • The Fund for Innovative Teaching and Learning is a campus-wide, competitive fund for collaborative research with one or more professors, possibly spanning departments.

For each, the professor(s) must be willing to supervise a project over the summer.  Both pay over $300/week for the duration.  FITL projects are expected to be student-initiated; both require an application by the beginning of March so check the Career services link for details.
