UIC offers a unique opportunity to freshman engineering students. Conceived of and supported by the faculty and the dean of the College of Engineering, the Guaranteed Paid Internship Program (GPIP) gives incoming fall freshman students the opportunity to serve as paid interns during the summer months, providing they meet certain criteria by the end of their first year of study.

The GPIP application for the 2023-2024 academic year has closed. Only new transfer and freshman students starting in the fall were eligible to apply.
