The DaRin Butz Undergraduate Research Internship Program at the Arnold Arboretum of Harvard University is a 10-week paid internship conducting plant biology and climate change research. DaRin Butz Interns will not only conduct research under the guidance of their advisor, but will also develop their project with their advisors and be guided through the process of sharing their research through written reports and oral presentations, an important component of scientific research. Interns will participate in activities with the other DaRin Butz Interns, including a weekly reading group.

Any undergraduate student who is enrolled in an undergraduate program at the time of application is welcome to apply. We encourage applications from groups under-represented in the sciences. An excellent academic record and participation in a wide range of campus activities are highly regarded, but not the sole criteria for the selection process.

The DaRin Butz Foundation Research Internship Program pays a stipend of $6250 for the ten-week period. Interns will be reimbursed for travel (up to $550) to the Boston metro area.
