The SBAR Junior Internship is an intensive, 2-week (60-hr) career shadow and experience program that links high school students to careers in agriculture and biotechnology. Students work alongside industry chemists, geneticists, engineers, or other research scientists at the University of Arizona to learn what it is like to have a career in agricultural science. 

Interns are required to produce a poster display that is focused on the day-to-day tasks, necessary skills, and relevant education/experience needed for a successful career including pictures about their experience, which will be presented at the annual SBAR Retreat (generally hosted in Tucson).

The SBAR Senior Internship is an intensive, 8-week internship (250-hr) program that links high school and 1st-year college students to degrees and careers in agriculture and biotechnology. Students gain valuable field skills while spending time with industry chemists, geneticists, engineers, or other research scientists at the University of Arizona.

Interns are required to make a scientific poster about the research that they conduct during their internship, which will be presented at the annual SBAR Retreat (generally hosted in Tucson).

The 2021 SBAR Summer Internship Opportunity has been cancelled, but we anticipate offering a SBAR Summer Internship Opportunity in 2022! This page will be updated with the latest information as it becomes available. In the meantime, if you would like more information about the program, please reach out to Natalie Brassill (nbrassill1@arizona.edu) with any questions.
