Previous research experience in a biological laboratory is highly desirable, but not required.
Applications will not be considered from those who have, or will receive, their baccalaureate degrees by December, 2017, or are currently in high school or graduate/medical school. Exceptions are made for international students enrolled, directly from high school, in one of the first five years of a six-or-seven-year ‘medical program.’ Students who have previously participated in the HSCI summer internship program are also ineligible to reapply to the program.
The application cycle for summer, 2017, is now open (http://hsci.harvard.edu/application). The decisions of the Application Review Committee will be announced, via email, in late February/early March, 2017.
