Student Opportunities

Current opportunities for Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, and Wyoming-based college students

RAIN was formed to support regional collaborations focused on common scientific themes.  Opportunities exist for undergraduate students from the region to participate in transformative research experiences in the RAIN states. Individual INBRE Programs within RAIN host expertise-specific student programs, such as lab fellowships, workshops, and summer camps.  RAIN student researchers are the best and brightest undergraduate students in the RAIN Region. The selection process is competitive and rigorous.  Support for travel and housing may be available through the home state INBRE.
