Martin Scholars 2014-15

The Martin Institute inaugurated the Martin Scholar program in 2005 in order to help IS majors be more competitive for post-graduation employment and admission to graduate programs. Students selected as Martin Scholars become paid research interns working on major global issues.

The scholars work in groups of three or four on a predetermined topic, under the guidance of both a faculty mentor who is an expert in the field and the Institute director. They enroll in IS 485, which includes a six-week seminar under the tutelage of the faculty mentor as well as the beginning of the year-long research project. Scholars select a particular research topic that will then engage them for the rest of the academic year.

A dedicated office is set aside across from the Martin Institute for use of the scholars, who hold a minimum of two office hours each week. Each scholar receives $1,000 for their work, which culminates in a public presentation of their research. Applications for the forthcoming academic year are available at the beginning of February each spring.
