The Science Alliance is a UI-sponsored collaborative, connecting faculty, staff, graduate students and post-docs interested in cultivating future generations of scientists with UI students currently exploring research opportunities.
The Science Alliance Internship Program supports underrepresented first and second year students interested in exploring research on campus. The program aims to enrich the undergraduate experience through coursework, mentor matching, career guidance, and creating a cohort of students with similar interests in PhD-related research careers in science. Competitive wages to carryout research in laboratories and access to a summer program for Science Alliance Interns will be provided.
In addition to carrying out paid undergraduate research for 10-12 hours per week, Science Alliance Interns will enroll in a IBA:1041 – Student Development Seminar (1 s.h.) depending on the student’s point of entry into the program. Course should be determined with assistance from program staff.
