Description: 

The Harvard Stem Cell Institute (HSCI) Internship Program (HIP) provides 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.
   

Benefits: 

A stipend of $4,500.00 will be provided, and this is intended to cover transportation and housing costs related to participation in this program. Students, especially international students with J-1 visa requirements, will require evidence of greater personal financial resources to support their time at Harvard. On-campus housing will likely be available at a cost to the participant of approximately $3,700.00. Kitchen facilities are NOT available during the summer. Participants may secure private housing (e.g., sublets) on their own. Meal plans are not available for HIP participants.
