Educational Outreach and Community Engagement on the California Campus

The mission of Scripps' multi-faceted Academic Preparation and Educational Outreach Programs is to utilize the intellectual and material resources at The Scripps Research Institute to recruit and train the next generation of scientists. These programs promote science education and awareness nationally and locally by raising undergraduate and high school students' awareness of career opportunities in the biomedical and chemical sciences, providing middle and high school teachers with cutting-edge professional development, and fostering an understanding in the general public of the basic ties that exist between biomedical research and human health.

As part of this mission, The Scripps Research Institute is committed to increasing the participation of female, underrepresented minority, and first-generation college-bound students in the biomedical and chemical sciences. Our programs recruit high achieving students from all backgrounds across the country and in San Diego County.
