Broad Institute Summer Scholars Program: Apply by Jan. 25

The Broad Institute in Cambridge offers the Broad Summer Scholars Program (BSSP) invites highly motivated, Boston-area, high-school juniors with a strong interest in science to spend six weeks with Broad scientists to conduct original research projects in areas such as cancer biology, psychiatric disease, chemical biology, computational biology, and infectious disease. Students will also explore scientific careers, attend scientific talks, present their research to the Broad community in a scientific poster session, attend a college fair; participate in social events, and meet other students with similar interests. No previous research experience is required. There is no cost to apply or attend, and compensation is available for students demonstrating a financial need. Applications are due January 25. Students who apply may also have their application considered for a new April vacation week program, Broadie for a Week.
