Learn more about the iUTAH Undergraduate Research Fellows (iFellows) Program.

The iUTAH Undergraduate Research Fellows (iFellows) Program provided an opportunity for undergraduate students from institutions across the state to gain first-hand research experience in the labs of iUTAH project scientists. iFellows participated in an 11-week paid research experience and received $4,500. All iFellows, regardless of their home institution, were placed at either the University of Utah (UU), Utah State University (USU), or Brigham Young University (BYU) for the summer.


Throughout the summer, iFellows trained side-by-side with iUTAH researchers and graduate students, participated in professional skill development sessions, expanded science communication skills, practiced science poster and oral presentations, and engaged with panels of STEM professionals from a number of different careers.
