Mitchell Cancer Institute's Undergraduate Summer Internship Program

The University of South Alabama Mitchell Cancer Institute is proud to announce the development of a new Undergraduate Summer Intern Program, in collaboration with the USA College of Medicine.  The new program offers several opportunities for undergraduates majoring in the sciences, engineering, or mathematics to explore biomedical research during the summer semester with stipend funding from one of the following areas: the American Heart Association, USA Center for Lung Biology and USA Mitchell Cancer Institute. This opportunity is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents who have just completed their freshman, sophomore, or junior year with a 3.0 GPA or higher. This is a full-time summer commitment. 

All prospective interns must submit an online application. The application deadline for each year’s Undergraduate Summer Internship Program is March 1.
