Undergraduate Programs

Undergraduate training experiences include the Stowers Summer Scholars program.  Academic semester and summer research internships are available by application to individual laboratories.


Stowers Summer Scholars

Each summer, the Institute welcomes dozens of undergraduate students who are pursuing a degree in the biological or physical sciences as part of the Stowers Summer Scholars program. They come from schools all over the country and the world—bringing with them an unbridled passion for science.

Summer Scholars spend eight weeks immersed in a research topic under the direction of a principal investigator. Scholars experience not only the intellectual and collaborative spirit of research, but they are given the opportunity to familiarize themselves with the latest techniques in our laboratories and scientific technology support centers.

Lab Internships

Individual labs often host undergraduate students for hands-on research training that lasts a semester or longer. These opportunities allow students to delve further into a research project while learning to utilize advanced lab techniques and technology.

Availability is lab specific.
