in the world, in an environment devoted exclusively to biomedical research.
Eligibility: The Summer Internship Program is for students who will be sixteen years
of age or older at the time they begin the program and who are currently enrolled
at least half-time in high school or an accredited U.S. college or university as
undergraduate, graduate, or professional students. Students who have been accepted
into a college or university program may also apply. To be eligible, candidates
must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents.
Stipend Information: The stipends for trainees are adjusted yearly; the level depends
on prior experience. For details, see the Trainee Stipends page.
