UPOP Applications

UPOP is MIT's "career accelerator" for sophomores. We are the Undergraduate Practice Opportunities Program, and we give MIT sophomores a year of learning and practicing the  essential "real-world" skills that employers are seeking, skills that will help you thrive in your internship and later career.

Applications for the Class of 2021 MIT Sophomores have now closed. We will open applications for the Class of 2022 sophomores late August 2019. Our applications take very little time! You'll enter some basic information, answer a couple of questions, upload a headshot—as hundreds apply, it's handy to match a face to a name!—and a résumé. Our applications close around the end of September each year, and we let you know usually by the end of the first week of October.
