Kenan Undergraduate Intern

The Kenan Fellows Undergraduate Internship Program broadly explores (1) chemical reactivity and diversity as tools to probe biochemical structure and function, and (2) the connection of molecular and cellular structure with complex organismal phenomena such as aging, metabolism, learning and memory.

In addition to the research experience, weekly seminars by faculty introduce participants to current research endeavors at Scripps Florida. Seminars with Scripps graduate students and postdoctoral fellows will explore issues such as choosing a graduate school and mentor, graduate school applications, graduate student life, and career paths in science. At the culmination of the program, participants produce a research poster and present their work in an Institute-wide poster competition. The program also provides a number of social activities to foster interaction among students, their mentors, and members of TSRI's research community.

Compensation and Housing

Participants will receive a $5,000 stipend for the 10-week program based on a standard 40-hour work week. If needed, housing is provided either on the adjacent Florida Atlantic University campus or at a similar location.
