California Outreach Programs

The mission of Scripps Research's multi-faceted educational outreach programs is to utilize the institute's intellectual and material resources to recruit and train the next generation of scientists. These programs promote science education and awareness by introducing high school and undergraduate students to 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 fundamental connection between biomedical research and human health.

As part of this mission, Scripps Research 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.
