Description:
The Summer Scholars program is for undergraduate students interested in the PhD degree in the Biological or Biomedical Sciences and for students with a potential interest in attending graduate school at the University of Rochester.

The School of Medicine and Dentistry offers a welcoming and inclusive environment that reflects and values the diversity of our faculty and students. We strongly encourage students from groups under-represented in the sciences to apply to our program. These groups include students with disabilities, students from racial/ethnic minority groups, first-generation college students and individuals from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds.

The Intellectual Merit of the program derives from the major strengths in the University of Rochester's cross campus programs in the Biological Sciences, combining programs from the undergraduate campus Department of Biology and Basic Science Departments of the University of Rochester Medical Center. Trainees will be selected from a large national pool of applicants, and will participate in a centerpiece 10-week, hands-on, independent research project under the supervision of a faculty mentor, with guidance from graduate students and postdoctoral appointees, and oversight from the Program Director. Each summer program offers a stipend of $450 per week.
