Michigan in the World (MITW) is a paid undergraduate internship program where students develop online public exhibitions of research about the history of U-M and its relationships with the wider world. MITW is a partnership with the Bentley Historical Library and the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. Working with a faculty expert and graduate student coordinator, students engage in extensive original research in campus archives and present their findings in a digital exhibit designed for public and classroom audiences.
MITW projects have won multiple research awards from the U-M Library, and in a 2018 assessment, 100% of undergraduate respondents reported that the experience provided them with skills that would help them in their careers or graduate studies.
Application information for undergraduates (Bentley Michigan in the World Research Fellowships) and graduate students (Graduate Student Supervisor) is available during the winter term.
