Academic Level:
High School Students

Our high school summer research fellowship program is highly competitive. We welcome applicants who desire hands-on, research training experience in biomedical sciences. Each high school student is mentored by an MDI Biological Laboratory researcher or visiting scientist. A co-curricular program helps students develop professional skills and foster connections within the scientific research community. Applicants from under-served populations are encouraged to apply. Summer high school research fellows live on campus in a structured and supervised living-learning environment. They are provided with on-campus dormitory style accommodations, full meal plans in the MDI Biological Laboratory dining hall, and a stipend. Travel is not funded. Dormitories are supervised by live-in residential advisors. Students must be nominated by a science teacher or guidance counselor to apply to this program. A completed nomination form must be received and approved by the Education Office prior to any student application activity. Approved nominees will be invited to submit a full application.
