SCRI Summer Scholars Program (SSSP)

Posted by:
December 7, 2022

In partnership with the Center for Diversity and Health Equity, the Office for Teaching, Education and Research is excited to offer our SCRI Summer Scholars Program (SSSP).

The goal of the program is to provide undergraduate students with a background that is historically underrepresented in the biomedical and health sciences an opportunity to engage in basic, clinical and/or translational research projects during the summer at Seattle Children’s Research Institute under the mentorship of experienced researchers and principal investigators.

Students will learn to use lab equipment (as applicable), meet with mentors and gain valuable research experience. Students will also attend career and professional training sessions on topics such as writing abstracts, résumé writing, cultivating interview skills, crafting an effective LinkedIn profile and more.

The program will culminate with each intern publishing an abstract of their research project in the internship’s Program Report.

Interns will receive $20 an hour for 40 hours per week. Up to 30 hours per week will be dedicated toward research. The remaining 10 hours per week will be dedicated to the professional development of the student, including time to write and edit their research abstract and attend career and professional development sessions. The program will last up to 10 weeks.

Scholars in the program will be offered travel and housing, and we will work with you to determine your needs and offer assistance as possible.

Applications will be open from February 1 to 28, 2023.

Applications will be considered equally as long as received prior to close.

Applications close at 11:59 p.m. Pacific on February 28, 2023. No late submissions will be accepted.
