How to Apply

Students interested in the SABR Internships should refer to the summaries of the faculty sponsors' research interests. You are encouraged to contact potential mentors whose interests match your own to discuss possible projects.

Eligibility Requirements:

To be eligible for this program we ask that you are an undergraduate who has interest in performing scientific research and attending graduate school.   Applicants who are currently enrolled in graduate school will not be eligible for review. Applicants taking post-baccalaureate classes with the intent to enter graduate school will be considered on a case-by-case basis. 

Deadlines and Decisions:

The deadline to apply to our 2018 SABR program is February 15th.  After the deadline, our SABR committee will review the applicant's research interests, academic performance, letters of recommendation, and personal essays.  This process determines which applicants are the best fit for the TTUHSC GSBS faculty as well as establishing an alternate group.  Decisions are announced in early April.  

The SABR program receives ~70 applications per year, taking only 10 interns based on the availability of funds and mentors.  

The Summer 2018 SABR Application is currently open.

You can apply online at

Account creation instructions: Rather than selecting SABR for the academic program of interest for your www.bioraider.comaccount, select the eventual graduate program of interest (for example, Biomedical Sciences PhD). Then after your account is complete, you can select the Summer Internships application for SABR.
