Science Alliance Program

Science Alliance Infographic   In 2019 the IBA program created a new initiative, the Science Alliance. It is a UI-sponsored collaborative, connecting faculty, staff, graduate students and post-docs interested in cultivating future generations of scientists. The Science Alliance Internship Program supports first and second year students interested in exploring research on campus. The program aims to enrich the undergraduate experience through coursework, mentor matching, career guidance, and creating a cohort of students with similar interests in science and research.
