Sample Internship Cover Letter
Dear Ms. ,
I am interested in applying for the scientific research spring internship position that was listed through the University Career Services Office.
I have had a great deal of laboratory experience in chemistry, biology, and geology, both indoors and in the field. In the lab, I have performed chemical reactions and I am currently using microscopes to observe many different types of specimens. In environmental field studies, I have conducted outdoor labs to assess water chemistry.
Last fall, I worked as conservation assistant at Creekview National Park. I am seeking to complement this outdoor experience with a research internship in order to acquire the background necessary for a future career in scientific research.
I believe that I would be an asset to your program. This internship would provide me with the ideal opportunity to assist at your organization and to expand my research skills.
I will be in touch next week to see if you agree that my qualifications seem to be a match for the position. If so, I hope to schedule an interview at a mutually convenient time. I look forward to speaking with you.
Thank you for your consideration.
