Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Internship

The Summer Undergraduate Research Experience (SURE) Internship program at The Hormel Institute allows interns to work with scientists on biomedical research projects. This helps students expand their knowledge of basic research and gain firsthand experience learning about equipment and techniques that are generally not available in undergraduate academic programs.

Students are selected for the SURE internship program based on their high level of academic achievement, recommendations from academic leaders, college majors, and plans to pursue careers in science-related fields. In addition to lab experience, students participate in weekly professional development courses. At the conclusion of the internship, students will highlight their summer work and learning through a presentation and poster session.

Applications for the summer of 2024 are now open! You can apply by clicking here.

Attention Past Interns

Our interns are a valued part of our family!
