Undergraduate Program

The IBA is a grant-funded program that supports the academic and personal success of University of Iowa students interested in pursuing a Ph.D. in the Biosciences.

IBA students have access to hands-on research opportunities, a faculty mentor, professional development workshops, competitive wages, free tutoring (as needed) and a strong community of students, faculty, and staff with common goals.

The benefit is that each IBA student graduates with a true advantage - a polished personal statement, preparation for the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), practice interviewing, numerous research presentations, and a lifelong network of friends and colleagues. By the time IBA students graduate, they are strong candidates for top graduate programs in the Biosciences.
