Monday, June 8 – Friday, August 14, 2020
Harvard University, Cambridge & Boston, Massachusetts.
Each intern is placed, at the discretion of the program administrators, in one of Harvard’s 11 affiliated hospitals and research centers (see maps of community)
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Internship Program (HIP) provides undergraduate students with a focused and challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory. Interns are exposed to different professional options within the scientific arena through a stem cell seminar series, a career pathways presentation, and a weekly stem cell companion course. Students present their summer research findings, both orally and in poster format, at the HIP Symposium—a requirement of all program participants.
This is an UNDERGRADUATE internship program open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who express a strong interest in stem cell biology. Candidates must be enrolled in a program in the natural sciences. Applicants may be from Harvard or any college or university across the United States and internationally. Harvard University will sponsor the visas for international students who are selected for this program.
Previous research experience in a biological laboratory is highly desirable, but not required.
Applications will not be considered from those who have, or will receive, their baccalaureate degrees by December, 2020, or are currently in high school or graduate/medical school. Exceptions are made for international students enrolled, directly from high school, in one of the first five years of a six-or-seven-year medical program. Students who have previously participated in the HSCI summer internship program are also ineligible to reapply to the program.
The application link for summer, 2020, will be available on this site beginning December, 2019.
THE DEADLINE FOR APPLICATIONS IS MONDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 2020. The program will begin on Monday, June 8, 2020. All selected candidates must commit to being at Harvard by Monday, June 15th (absolutely no exceptions to this requirement).
A stipend of $4,500.00 will be provided, and this is intended to cover transportation and housing costs related to participation in this program. Students, especially international students with J-1 visa requirements, will require evidence of greater personal financial resources to support their time at Harvard. On-campus housing will likely be available at a cost to the participant of approximately $3,700.00. Kitchen facilities are NOT available during the summer. Participants may secure private housing (e.g., sublets) on their own. Meal plans are not available for HIP participants.
