Description:
The SMYSP Summer Residential Program (SRP) is an annual science- and medicine-based enrichment program open to low-income and ethnically diverse high school sophomores and juniors who live in northern and central California. Ten Stanford undergraduate counselors guide 24 students through a 5-week residential program held on the Stanford University campus. Hospital internships, anatomy laboratories, and lectures provided by Stanford faculty expose students to hands-on science and a variety of health, medicine, and science careers. Additionally, students receive college admissions guidance, SAT preparation and resume writing as well as conduct scientific research projects to bolster their academic skills. Students are matched with adult mentors throughout the summer and become part of the SMYSP alumni association, which offers additional mentorship and resources, upon graduation. There is no cost to participate in SMYSP.
