The Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) proudly offers many educational opportunities throughout the year.


SNPRC Summer Internship Program

The Southwest National Primate Research Center (SNPRC) offers educational and training opportunities for a limited number of students during an 8-week summer session. Our scientists mentor students enrolled in Undergraduate (sophomore, junior or senior level) and Graduate professional (Ph.D. and veterinary) programs. Students currently enrolled at accredited academic institutions are encouraged to apply. Successful applicants for these paid internships will begin their experience at SNPRC starting on June 6 and ending on July 29, 2022. It is our goal to provide all interns with a rich learning culture that encourages ongoing development of skills and knowledge.
