Scintillon Institute is now accepting applications for this summer's SURE program.
The Summer Internship Program (SURE Program) aims to introduce top high school applicants to basic scientific research and prepare them for college. One goal of this immersive research experience is to encourage and prepare the most talented high school students for successful careers in biomedical research. In addition, the SURE Program aims to create a pipeline of future scientists for the highly competitive and successful biomedical research community in San Diego County.
The very best high school students from San Diego County school districts will be selected and invited to participate in the SURE Program. A Scintillon Institute faculty member will be the student’s scientific mentor and will introduce the student to the program’s curriculum and guide the student through to graduation of the program.
The SURE Program has a specially tailored curriculum that aligns the students’ time constraints with the commitment required by basic research.
Applications are due by 5pm on March 30, 2018. More details can be found under Summer Program.
