The Summer Research Program in Genomics (SRPG)
The Summer Research Program in Genomics, funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute, is designed for underrepresented minority undergraduate students with a commitment to research and an interest in genomics. Students spend the summer performing original computational or experimental-based research in laboratories across the Broad Institute’s research areas, from cancer to infectious disease to bioinformatics.
The program features a rich curriculum outside the lab designed to support students’ development as scientists, including a scientific communication course, faculty-led seminars and workshops on graduate school admissions and fellowships. Each student presents the results of his or her scientific research in written, oral, and poster presentations.
Features of the program:
- Nine week (June 10 - August 9) paid internship ($4,250 for the summer)
- Paid housing
- Paid travel expenses
- Academic and career guidance
- Team-building and social events allowing students to explore the Boston area
- Must be enrolled in a four-year college for Fall 2013
- Must major in physical, biological or computer sciences, engineering, or mathematics
- Must have a minimum 3.0 GPA
