The Rockefeller University Science Outreach Program

New York, NY

Overview

The Rockefeller University Summer Science Research Program (SSRP) provides high school students with a unique and personalized opportunity to conduct hands-on research under the mentorship of leading scientists at one of the world's premier biomedical research facilities. 

During this rigorous 7-week program, The Rockefeller University Summer Science Research Program (SSRP) students become immersed in scientific culture while gaining an appreciation for the process of biomedical discovery.

Through a combination of laboratory experimentation, interactive lectures, and dynamic coursework, students will learn fundamental research techniques, become better acquainted with scientific peer-reviewed literature, and improve critical thinking. Equally as important, students will have a lot of fun -- we strive to make the SSRP an inclusive and supportive environment where every student’s voice is heard and respected. 

Please be aware that the review process for the Summer Science Research Program is extensive. This is due to the nature of the program: each student is individually matched with a volunteer scientist-mentor. A match is determined by a number of criteria, including the personal goals of the student, the needs of the laboratory, and the availability of volunteer scientist-mentors. It should also be noted that while Rockefeller has 75 laboratories, some research, such as that pertaining to infectious diseases or human studies, may not be appropriate for high school summer research. Consequently, acceptance into the program is based on a high score during the application review and on a successful match with a scientist-mentor.
