The Office of Graduate Education (OGE) is excited to announce the 2021 cohort of MIT Summer Research Program (MSRP) interns. This year, OGE has the pleasure of hosting 78 diverse, talented research interns for a transformative academic experience.
Through the MSRP curriculum, OGE aims to sharpen student competencies and awareness in the areas of research comprehension and communication; research ethics; research identity; and professional and career exploration.
This summer’s hybrid program began Monday, June 7 and will run until Saturday, August 7, 2021. Interns live on MIT’s campus, engage in virtual or in-person research activities, participate in virtual professional development and research seminars, and — hopefully — fall in love with the MIT campus, community, and surrounding areas through community-building programming.
Departments are invited to host virtual activities to welcome the cohort, and will have the opportunity to engage with interns through programs like the “Meet the Faculty” Grad Chats. This highly-popular series, initiated during the 2020 virtual program, allows the interns to enjoy small group interactions with a wide range of faculty.
See the 2021 cohort via the cohort profile sheet. Learn about cohort demographics and more through the MSRP quick facts infographic. If you have any questions, reach out to the OGE GradDiversity staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
