Learn how to recommend a student who has a strong interest in bioscience or how to schedule a recruitment presentation for your students.

Request A Presentation

Our recruitment presentations can be tailored to be as short as 15 minutes or as long as 30 minutes. We enjoy visiting individual classrooms, but we can also present to several classes in one large group. We will present to all STEM subjects, but we only accept students who are 16 years and older. If you would like to host KEYS staff for a recruitment presentation at your school or in your classroom, or want to receive program materials, please email keys@bio5.org.

Recommend A Student

If you know a student who has great potential and a strong interest in bioscience, please encourage them to learn more about the KEYS Research Internship Program. This research opportunity gives student hands-on experience in a UA laboratory and provides them with a strong foundation for success at the University of Arizona.

Recommendations are received in the format of an online survey through the University of Arizona Qualtrics program. Once a student submits their application, a link to the survey will be sent to their recommending teachers to complete. Separate letters of recommendations will not be accepted.

The deadline for teachers to submit online student recommendations for the 2024 KEYS Research Internship has passed. 
The recommendation deadline for the 2025 KEYS application will be updated in Fall of 2024.
