Abstract

The Sophomore Internship Program (SIP) at IUPUI offers paid internships for 21st Century Scholars, but has experienced low student engagement. The researchers completed interviews with sophomore 21st Century Scholars to explore the factors that influence their decision to participate in internships. Themes that emerged through transcription and coding include: communication, relationships, barriers, and attractive factors. The interviews and themes allowed the SIP coordinator to adjust recruitment strategies for future semesters in order to increase applicants.
