The Scripps Research Institute's High School Student Research Education Program exposes students to contemporary issues in biomedical research and provides hands-on laboratory experience and mentorship. It is committed to increasing the number of talented students who choose a career in the biological and chemical sciences, particularly first-generation college-bound students and students from groups that are underrepresented in science.

This program is a part of the San Diego Workforce Partnership’s Life Sciences Summer Institute (LSSI) which begins with a one-week unpaid boot camp followed by a seven-week paid research internship.

Program Dates

June 19 – August 11, 2017
(Includes June 19-23 “boot camp” covering biotechnology laboratory skills, safety practices and other skills.)


The application deadline for the 2017 summer program is Wednesday, March 29, 2017 at 5 p.m. PDT.
