Amazing Summer Pre-Med Opportunity
For students in Miami-Dade County interested in majoring in pre-med, here is an amazing opportunity to learn more about health-related careers…
The University of Miami Department of Mathematics and Science is informing all high schools of the opportunity for high school students to participate in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Summer Scholars Research Program.
The Scholars Research Program for High School Students, funded by a grant from HHMI, provides an exciting opportunity for public and private school students with a passion for science to gain hands-on research experience.
Students work in teams to conduct biomedical research over the course of seven weeks at UM (research teams are formed pairing private with public school students).
Student teams are mentored by a UM professor, are responsible for an investigative project, prepare a research report suitable for publication, and give an oral presentation at a research symposium on UM’s Coral Gables campus. Each summer, around 18-20 students are selected.
The 2013 program dates are from Monday, June 10, 2013 – Thursday, July 25, 2013.
Application deadline is March 29, 2013. Selections will be announced in early April, 2013.
Applicants must be from Miami-Dade County who are entering their junior or senior year of high school.
Admission is based on a combination of high school grades, courses taken, an essay, a letter of recommendation, and career goals.
