Microsoft Undergraduate Research Internship – STEM

If you are a rising senior or will graduate this spring and aspire to a career in research in a STEM field, you can apply for the Undergraduate Research Internship Program at Microsoft Research.


The program is a 12-week summer internship program specifically designed for college upperclassmen (upcoming seniors and recent graduates) and offers the opportunity to work in one of our Microsoft Research Labs worldwide. You will work with our researchers and extended network of visiting faculty and doctoral students to make important contributions to our ongoing work. One of the program’s goals is to encourage participants to pursue advanced degrees in STEM fields. Your on-the-job learning will be augmented with mentoring, community building, and networking opportunities.


Candidates must be junior or senior students enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program majoring in computer science, computer engineering, software engineering, computer engineering information science or related technical major. Students must have significant programming experience, completed courses in Calculus, Probability, and Statistics and/or Machine Learning by the start of the program. Finalists will be selected on the basis of eligibility and demonstrated interest in academic research. Priority will be given to students who have participated in academic research in the past.

All candidates who meet the above criteria may apply. We especially encourage applications from groups currently underrepresented in engineering, including women, Native-Americans, African-Americans, Hispanics, Veterans and students with disabilities.

To apply, submit an online application on the Microsoft Research Careers website. To be assured of full consideration, all materials, including reference letters, need to be received by December 1, 2017. In completing your application, please be sure to follow these additional instructions
