The 2023 KEYS Research Internship applications opened November 21, 2022.
The KEYS Internship Program was highlighted on Celebrating Life & Science which aired on ABC15 in 2020.
In addition to in-person internships, virtual internships are available for a limited number of highly motivated students with interests or skills in computational biology and bioinformatics.
KEYS recruits and attracts the best and the brightest from the state’s many diverse communities to UArizona for the experience of a lifetime. Through KEYS, interns will learn and grow, and gain the experience, skills, and conviction that will allow them to thrive in a rapidly changing world. KEYS provides many incentives for these promising students to stay in Arizona for college, and beyond.
KEYS interns not only gain experience in interdisciplinary bioscience, biomedical science, biostatistics, biomedical engineering, data science, or environmental health research, but also train in biotechnology skills, science literacy, ethics, and communications that they typically wouldn’t learn in the classroom.
In order to become leaders of tomorrow, today’s students need determination, curiosity, and a mindset that embraces teamwork, creativity, problem solving, and emotional competence. These are all capabilities reinforced through the KEYS experience.
