This is the second year under the four-year renewal begun in June 2008. In June-August, 2009 six University of Chicago students did internships in Chile.  In January-March, 2010, seven Chilean students did ten-week internships in Chicago.   In June 2010 seven U of C undergrads will begin internships in Santiago.  In both directions the program has grown beyond the anticipated level of six per year.

Chileans in Chicago: January-March 2010

Recruiting/welcome reception. We continued our practice of organizing a reception for the students, their research groups and prospective interns from Chicago in February. About 50 people attended. The Chilean interns served as hosts. They decided on the food to be served and decorated the room. They prepared a slide show of Santiago to entice prospective interns. The Chilean students seemed to welcome to this task and rise to the challenge with enthusiasm.  The reception will be continued.

Faculty visits

There were no faculty visits this year.  We will look more actively for appropriate faculty visits this year.

Last year we listed six publications with intern co-authors.  The research work leading to these publications typically spans several years. This year there were no papers published by our supervisors that listed interns as co-authors.
