Students participating in LFSCI 199R are expected to find their own internship experience. Use the "Find an internship" page and the "Past internships providers" page to find ideas for internships. Use the tips on the top of the FAQs page to aid in your search. Once secured, students should submit a university internship application here https://experience.byu.edu/students (click on “internship application”). Make sure to choose LFSCI 199R as the internship course, or the system will not notify the correct internship coordinator. If you do not receive a follow up email within a few days, email Daniel Dearden at email@example.com to follow up.
If the internship is approved, students will receive a follow up email with further instructions, including submitting an online orientation in Canvas and attending a pre-orientation appointment with a Life Sciences Internship Coordinator (Daniel Dearden or Cindy Tolman). We look forward to working with you to get credit for your internship!
