A special word of acknowledgment to the Paul W. Zuccaire Foundation and its President, Alice Jean Zuccaire, who made possible this program's launch in 2004.
The Pasteur Foundation Summer Internship Program provides U.S. undergraduates, entering their Junior year, with the rare opportunity to work on supervised research projects at the Institut Pasteur. The Foundation’s goal is to encourage and inspire students in the pursuit of a scientific career and to expose them to an international laboratory experience.
Each year, selected laboratories at the Institut Pasteur host U.S. undergraduate students. CHeck the website in early fall 2016 for an updated Application Form and the list of 2017 participating labs.

During the internships, interns will carry out research supervised by a lab mentor. Applicants should be eager to engage with a different culture, and self-sufficient enough to arrange travel and secure housing in Paris. Depending on availability, affordable housing in a residence on campus may be possible. Interns will receive $6,500 paid in two installments and which must cover travel, housing and all living expenses.
Applicants will be notified in early spring 2016 about the status of their application.
