The Monell Science Apprenticeship Program’s mission is to stimulate an interest in biomedical science or medicine as careers – particularly in groups typically underrepresented in science, including females, ethnic or racial minorities, and the economically disadvantaged. Our program is consistently listed in the 25 Best Pre-college Summer Science Programs for High School Students by Best College Reviews.
With your support, our current summer program includes:
- At least seven weeks of paid full-time structured research activity with a Monell scientist.
- A public conference where apprentices present their research to scientific staff, family members, and friends.
- Enrichment activities that include lectures on scientific topics; public speaking and written communication; and ethical principles guiding human and animal research.
- Opportunities to learn about different careers in medicine and science.
