Broad Summer Scholars Program

The Broad Summer Scholars Program (BSSP) invites a small number of exceptional and mature students with a strong interest in science to spend six weeks at the Broad Institute.

We match students with Broad scientists to conduct original, cutting-edge research projects in areas such as: cancer biology, chemical biology, computational biology, genome sequencing and analysis, and more. In addition to original research, students will explore scientific careers; attend the Midsummer Nights’ Science lecture series; learn about personal genomics; meet and hear about the research of faculty and scientists from MIT, Harvard, and the Broad; present their research to the Broad community in a scientific poster session; attend a college fair; and meet other students conducting research.

 

BSSP runs from June 26, 2017 – August 4, 2017.

 
BSSP is nonresidential. Rising seniors from Cambridge, Boston, and surrounding communities are eligible to apply. A limited number of stipends are available for participants who qualify. The deadline to receive the completed application form, including teacher recommendations, is January 27, 2017. Applicants to BSSP will be notified of their selection on or before April 14, 2017.
