Note: this opportunity encourages applications from community college students.

The purpose of the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute’s Undergraduate Summer Internship Program is to allow talented undergraduate students interested in a career in academic research the opportunity to spend approximately ten weeks during the summer conducting hypothesis-driven research in childhood cancer in one of the laboratories at the Greehey Children’s Cancer Research Institute.

Most research-oriented academic institutions offer undergraduate and high school summer students programs to experience laboratory research. Still, access to such opportunities in a dedicated children’s cancer research environment is a unique offering. Since research conducted at our facility utilizes a wide range of techniques and model systems, students can experience not only a unique firsthand look at children’s cancer research. Still, they will be able to do so from basic science and clinically relevant experimental paradigms.

Students here experience a distinctive firsthand look at childhood cancer research and can do so from basic science and clinically relevant experimental paradigms. Our program is intended to educate the next generation of cancer researchers and has offered students from throughout the nation and worldwide opportunities to learn in a fast-paced, cutting-edge cancer research environment.

A stipend is available to successful undergraduate applicants to help defray some of the student’s expenses. High school students do not receive stipends and meals; housing and transportation are not provided.
