Undergraduate Research

Scripps Research offers unique mentoring and research experiences to undergraduates during the summer and throughout the academic year. Recruitment efforts are geared toward students with no prior research experience, students with few research opportunities at their home institutions, students from underrepresented and underserved populations, and students who are the first in their family to go to college.

The Diversity Visitation Event for Research and Graduate Education (DiVERGE) is a multi-day. all-expense-paid program held on the UF Scripps Biomedical Research campus in Jupiter, Florida. (Since 2021, the program has been offered virtually, and will be again in January 2023.) Geared toward undergraduate students interested in biomedical research careers, the program is designed to give participants an in-depth preview of Scripps Research's top-10-ranked doctoral program in the chemical and biological sciences and the summer undergraduate research programs (SURF, NSF REU) held on both the UF Scripps campus in Jupiter, Florida and the Scripps Research campus in La Jolla, California. It also features useful workshops and laboratory tours. More information can be found on the DiVERGE Program page.
