After a successful first run, the Summer Scientist Internship is back for a second season. The Summer Scientist Internship program is intended to spark a research interest in adolescents from groups that aren’t well-represented in medical science. Participants experience a two month paid laboratory experience at The Research Institute, placed with a researcher for learning and mentorship in a field of study of interest to the student.
Students must be a junior or senior in high school, age 17 or older, hold a minimum GPA of 3.5 and be a member of a race/ethnicity that is underrepresented in medicine. Applications must be postmarked by Friday, March 25, 2011.
