Business Opportunities

Establish a Research Internship Program for UH Students
We are seeking partnerships with Houston-area companies, institutions, and organizations who can offer real-world research internships in any field.  Programs that can support several UH students are encouraged.  The Office of Undergraduate Programs and academic colleges will work with corporate sponsors to establish the terms of the internship program and selection of candidates.  Research internships provide companies an opportunity to get an early start in training and investing in future employees. 

Post a research internship opportunity
Are you a hiring manager or are you aware of any research projects within your company or organization that could benefit from an undergraduate intern?  A research internship position provides an opportunity for students to use research skills in a real-world setting.

Post a Project in the Real-World Team Projects Registry
Do you have a project that you would like to have students tackle as their class project? These projects may be assigned in research-intensive courses such as senior capstone courses. We are seeking projects from the corporate and non-profit sectors that can be addressed within a one semester course under the guidance of a faculty mentor.  Projects sponsored by corporate clients are encouraged.  More details about this program will be posted as it becomes available.

Provide support for the UH Learning through Discovery Initiative
We welcome in-kind donations, sponsorships, individual or corporate gifts.  Support can be designated for a particular program, resource, or project.
