 Creating Opportunities for Students

At AZBio we believe that today’s students are tomorrow’s bioscience leaders.  That is why AZBio hosts theStudent Discovery Zone during Arizona Bioscience Week at the AZBio Awards, allows AZBio members to post internship opportunities on he AZBio Career Center for free, and why we are so thankful to Representative Heather Carter for sponsoring HB2646 which would provide funding for paid internships in STEM fields   for Arizona Students.

We are building a database of internship data to support HB2646.  If you have data you can share, please email AZBio.
