To facilitate substantive undergraduate and graduate experience in private industry in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (the STEM fields), Nebraska EPSCoR developed the NESTIP program in 2001. Nebraska EPSCoR shares the cost of student internships at private companies for up to 12 months, paying for up to 50% of the student's salary and related FICA taxes but not more than $5,000 in a 6-month period. NESTIP funds one student per business at a time. Applications are accepted at any time and are selected on a competitive basis as funds for the program are available.

Nebraska EPSCoR also offers Summer Research Experiences for Undergraduates, in areas related to current funded projects; click here for more information.
