The plant science internship opportunities featured on this page generally offer funding, travel grants, and stipends to summer researchers. If you’re looking for additional funding, check out the opportunities are available through the members of the Plant Science Research Network.
The American Society of Plant Biologists (ASPB) Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowships (SURF) fund promising undergraduate students so they can conduct research in plant biology during the early part of their college careers. SURF recipients must present their research at ASPB’s annual Plant Biology meeting in the year following the fellowship award.
ASPB’s Minority Affairs Committee is offering a limited number of Recognition Travel Awards for students, postdocs, and faculty who are themselves members of groups underrepresented in the US scientific workforce and/or who are directly supporting the education and professional development of students in such groups. Recognition Travel Awards provide “full ride” fellowships to attend ASPB’s annual meeting, which will be held this year in Washington, DC from July 25-29, 2020.
Students who are interested in the mission of the Council on Undergraduate Research (CUR) and the support of undergraduate research and who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate, graduate, or postdoctoral program may join CUR as an individual member. Students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) and similar research-based courses are also eligible to join CUR.
The Strategies for Ecology Education, Diversity and Sustainability (SEEDS) program is the flagship award-winning education program of the Ecological Society of America (ESA). Its mission is to diversify and advance the ecology profession through opportunities that stimulate and nurture the interest of underrepresented students to participate, and to lead in ecology.
Travel awards to attend annual the International Conference on Arabidopsis Research (ICAR) will be offered, for early career researchers and underrepresented minorities in STEM. Special workshops at the ICAR include Data Carpentry and Story Collider. ICAR is organized by Organized by the North American Arabidopsis Steering Committee (NAASC).
The Plant Science Research Network (PSRN) is reimagining the potential of plants for a healthy future.
