2013 BWH STARS Program Call for Applications
We are writing to tell you about the 5th Summer of an exciting summer research opportunity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) for your underrepresented minority (URM) undergraduate juniors and seniors or first year medical students. The Office for Multicultural Faculty Careers at BWH is recruiting its third cohort of scholars to participate in the Summer Training in Academic Research and Scholarship (STARS) Program.
Briefly, students are invited to join us for 8 weeks to engage in basic, clinical or translational research projects under the supervision of BWH faculty advisors. At the end of the 8 weeks students will share their findings during a program ending research presentation day.
As well as conducting research, students will also receive professional development training, meet faculty from across the hospital and medical school, and participate in social networking events.
The BWH STARS Program will cover students’ travel costs to and from Boston, cost of housing, selected meals and activities, and a Research Trainee stipend.
This is a great opportunity for your students to train in the Harvard Medical School environment. The application deadline is January 23, 2013.
