Internships are an incredible way for students to get out there and experience what it’s like to be a scientist in the professional world. Hundreds of students from each of our departments have held internships over the years with private companies such as Intel and Boise Cascade as well as with state and federal governmental agencies, from the Department of Ecology to NASA.
Find an Internship
Internships are typically completed during your junior or senior year. For more information about finding an internship that fits your specific interest area and program requirements, you should work with your adviser. Other ways to find an internship:
University of Idaho Career and Professional Planning (CAPP): This on-campus resource helps students craft resumes, hone interview skills and connect with prospective employers.
Networking and building connections: Some students find an internship through their own research or through personal networks (friends, family, faculty members, etc.). All internships must be preapproved before credit can be granted.
