Program Description:    

BCMP Summer Scholars is a Harvard University summer internship program for motivated undergraduates with a strong interest in pursuing graduate studies focused on molecular mechanisms in biology. The program offers students the opportunity to gain experience in hands-on laboratory research; to interact with faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, and other summer interns; to attend weekly luncheon/seminar presentations by department members on specific research projects and cutting-edge research tools; and to improve presentation, writing, and communication skills.

Applicants may be from Harvard or any other college or university and must be authorized to work in the United States. Previous research experience is highly recommended, but not required. Admittance into the program is based on grades, recommendations, and research interests. Selected applicants will be matched with one of the participating laboratories. Students receive a stipend and will work full-time (40 hours/week) on research projects under the guidance of a research scientist. A 10-week series of luncheon/seminar meetings will begin with a training session on laboratory safety, followed by presentations from current graduate students and postdoctoral fellows in the department. Students will present their own work at the end of the program in August.
