Students in Biology
A summer research project or internship can be an excellent
way for you to explore new areas and get some practical experience, and it can
be of tremendous help in strengthening your applications for jobs, graduate
schools, and professional schools. Many opportunities exist for WSU students to
take part in these. If you are interested, we have provided the following
links to help you identify one which might be right for you. Check with your
academic advisor for more information.

Your advisor can help you identify the right program for you.
