Science Majors - Research Internship in Tokyo this Summer!


UTRIP - University of Tokyo Research Internship Program

FREE roundtrip airfare and housing, opportunities for further funding available!

The University of Tokyo Research Internship Program (UTRIP) is a summer internship program for undergraduate students majoring in natural science and other relevant fields. The program will provide students with an opportunity to gain the experience of "real graduate-school life" or "research-centered life." UTRIP is a gateway to pursuing an advanced degree and experiencing academic life at University of Tokyo ("Todai"). The program will be a good trial for students to test their aptitude for rigorous graduate study in the natural sciences. 

Participating students will closely work with leading researchers of the Graduate School of Science (GSS) at Todai. In addition to an opportunity for an outstanding scientific research work experience, the program includes off-campus activities such as a field-trip to a World-Heritage site in Japan, and social and cultural events to promote a better understanding of Japanese culture and build a good relationship with current students at Todai. Lectures on cross-disciplinary scientific areas are also part of the program.

At the conclusion of the program, students are required to make an oral presentation and submit a report on the research project. Participants who are highly evaluated by the faculty members will be given priority when applying for scholarships at the GSS.
