HSCI Internship Program
The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Internship Program (HIP) provides non-Harvard undergraduate students with a focused and challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory. Interns are exposed to different professional options within the scientific arena through a stem cell seminar series, a career pathways presentation, and a weekly stem cell companion course. Students present their summer research findings, both orally and in poster format, at the HIP Symposium—a requirement of all program participants.
This is an UNDERGRADUATE internship program open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who express a strong interest in stem cell biology. Candidates must be enrolled in a program in the natural sciences. Applicants may be from any college or university across the United States and internationally. Harvard University will sponsor the visas for international students who are selected for this program.
NEW FOR 2020: Harvard students working, or seeking to work, in stem cell labs at Harvard will not be funded by HSCI but are encouraged to seek funding from other sources at Harvard. These Harvard students are invited to particpate in the weekly class and social activities.
Previous research experience in a biological laboratory is highly desirable, but not required.
Applications will not be considered from those who have, or will receive, their baccalaureate degrees by December, 2020, or are currently in high school or graduate/medical school. Exceptions are made for international students enrolled, directly from high school, in one of the first five years of a six-or-seven-year medical program. Students who have previously participated in the HSCI summer internship program are also ineligible to reapply to the program.
