A goal of the Idaho INBRE Program is to provide research opportunities to Idaho undergraduate students and serve as a pipeline for these students to continue in health research careers. A broad base of students with interest, enthusiasm, and knowledge in science is a necessary first step to develop the next generation of biomedical researchers.

Undergraduate Fellowships and Internships


SCHOLARS: For freshmen or sophomores with no research lab experience

Provides an intense, two-week laboratory project in biology or molecular biology. Students work together in groups to articulate hypotheses, design experiments, and learn specific laboratory skills.

Industry Interns

INDUSTRY INTERNS: For undergraduates

Often the best choice for geographically-bound students with academic potential who do not have access to an academic research university.




FELLOWS: For upper-class undergraduates

A 10-week, high-impact academic laboratory summer research experience with a faculty mentor.



RAIN Student Exchange Outside Idaho

RAIN STUDENT EXCHANGE OUTSIDE IDAHO: For upper-class undergraduates

Opens to Alaska, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming INBRE undergraduate research programs to all students in the region.


National Lab Internships

NATIONAL LAB INTERNSHIPS: For upper-class undergraduates

Opens to ID, MT, NM, and WY-based college students to do a 10-week internship at one of the three national labs: Idaho National Laboratories (Idaho Falls, ID), Rocky Mountain Laboratories (Hamilton, MT), and Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, NM).

Post-Baccalaureate Opportunities


Supports graduate students and post-doctoral fellowships in biomedical programs at the University of Idaho, Boise State University, and Idaho State University.
