student working in field.Our vision is that each student in the TPS Ph.D. Graduate Program can have a study and internship plan that best resonates with his/her interests and future career goals. We have developed partnerships with a number of organizations and industries to make the internships a valuable life experience.

International Internships

We have partnerships with universities and institutes in several countries including Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and India.

Industry Internships

We are exploring exciting possibilities with large and small biotechnology-oriented companies. In addition, mechanisms are in place for TPS students to compete for opportunities at leading agriculture companies such as Bayer and Dow AgroSciences, among others. Current fellows interested in industry have chosen to complete internships with local companies such as 3Bar Biologics and Beck's Hybrids

Governmental Organization Internships

Mechanisms are in place for TPS students to compete for opportunities at the National Science Foundation and the US Department of Energy.

Non-Profit, Non-Governmental Organization Internships
