Broad Summer Scholars Program


View this Opportunity's Website 


Academic Level:
High School Students

Description:
The Broad Summer Scholars Program (BSSP) invites high school students with a strong interest in science to spend six weeks at the Broad Institute.

We match students with Broad scientists to conduct original, cutting-edge research projects in areas such as: cancer biology, psychiatric disease, chemical biology, computational biology, infectious disease, and more. In addition to original research, students will get to explore scientific careers; attend interesting scientific talks, including the Midsummer Nights' Science public lecture series; present their research to the Broad community in a scientific poster session; attend a college fair; participate in fun social events; and meet other students who share similar interests.

BSSP applicants must meet the following criteria: 1) be a rising senior in high school (i.e. students can apply their junior year), 2) attend a high school in the greater Boston area, 3) have earned a B or better in science and math class, 4) no previous research experience is required, but applicants must demonstrate excitement for science! A limited number of stipends are available for students who demonstrate financial need.
