BYU-Idaho has contracted with the Research and Business Development Center (RBDC) to provide meaningful work and internship opportunities to BYU-Idaho students. If an internship opportunity has been impacted by the events surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak and you are looking for a way to complete an experience remotely, we invite you to consider projects provided by the RBDC during the 2020 Spring Semester. There are various companies and projects available—visit the project board for a sample of these opportunities.
Many projects still have openings available, and one of these opportunities may fulfill practicum, elective, or internship credit requirements depending on your academic program. Students can participate 8–30 hours per week on projects over the course of the semester. All majors are encouraged to apply; however, internship credit requirements vary and must be approved by your major’s department.
RBDC Projects are called Applied Learning Projects (ALPS) and have varying degrees of time commitment required. Learn more about Applied Learning Projects (ALPS) Basic (8–10 hours per week elective or internship credit) here, and learn more about ALPS Advanced (20–30 hours per week, traditional internship) here.
