The UConn TIP Fellowship Program Is Now Open!

The UConn-TIP Innovation Fellowship Program focuses on connecting UConn students with start-ups from the university to help develop their skills. If you are a STEM or Business Student, Read below for more information on the program and how to apply!

UConn-TIP fellows participate in mentored research with their host TIP company.
