A variety of opportunities are available for passionate and committed undergraduate students interested in health and social innovation projects, specifically the Pratt Ignite and Calla Campaign fellows programs. If students are interested in engaging with us outside of these programs, they are welcome to apply for work-study, independent study and volunteer opportunities. Through these experiences, students will have the opportunity to gain and improve upon research, design, teaching, teamwork, mentoring and/or leadership skills.
Selection criteria include a clear articulation of interests, academic record, prior experience and maturity. We encourage applications from underrepresented populations in engineering – women, underrepresented minorities, and persons with disabilities. Learn more about all our undergraduate opportunities below.
