UA summer science internships now available to H.S. students statewide
Wednesday, February 17, 2010

High school students from around the state may now apply for the six-week KEYS life sciences summer internship program run by the University of Arizona’s BIO5 Institute and Southwest Environmental Health Sciences Center in the College of Pharmacy. Previously, the internship program focused solely on students from the Tucson area.

The internships offer a unique summer opportunity to motivated high school students who possess a strong interest in pursuing advanced education in bioscience or biomedical science. Those selected participate in independent research in an active laboratory, and learn science communication through weekly workshops with the other interns and KEYS personnel. The summer culminates with a poster session to showcase their research to the academic community and their friends and family.

Thanks to a new partnership with the Arizona Department of Education, high school students from outside of Tucson will be provided with housing in UA residence halls.

Completed applications must be mailed and postmarked no later than Monday, March 1, 2010. For information and to apply, go to http://keys.pharmacy.arizona.edu/index.php
