About Successful BTI Summer Internship Applicants

Successful applicants will have a genuine interest in scientific research and will have completed some introductory life science courses. An interest in plant molecular biology is weighed heavily, as are characteristics such as enthusiasm, motivation, and the ability to work collaboratively. We do not require previous research experience, or the highest grades; rather we look for students who will take full advantage of an intensive research-based learning opportunity.
