Internships are a wonderful opportunity to learn science and experience research first hand. Because many of these provide housing and a stipend, they are very competitive. Most have an application deadline of February 1 to March 10 and require faculty recommendation letters. Make your plans in the fall so that faculty will be able to write letters of recommendation for you. Also, you should apply to several internships since they are so competitive. Last year, we had students in many locations including the National Institutes of Health, U.T. Southwestern, and one student in Malaysia! See Biology faculty for more information.
