Description:
The Chicago Botanic Garden welcomes undergraduates that are interested in plant biology and conservation to apply to our Research Experiences for Undergraduates program, funded in part by the National Science Foundation. This 10 week internship program provides undergraduate participants an opportunity to explore a diverse array of scientific fields related to plant biology and conservation. This spans genetic to ecosystem levels of inquiry. Interns work with a mentor to conduct an independent research project, participate in training and professional development programs, and present their results to a broad audience. Participants receive a $5,750 stipend and the program will cover necessary expenses associated with the internship.

Due to COVID-19, the exact structure of the internship program remains ambiguous; however, we are committed to providing a meaningful experience abiding by health and safety restrictions. For more information, please visit our website.
