The University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry continually strives to diversify student populations and thus to increase the number of graduate students currently underrepresented in the biomedical and health sciences.  The Summer Scholars program is designed to encourage students from historically underrepresented minority groups in the STEM fields interested in a PhD degree in the Biological or Biomedical Sciences and for students with a potential interest in attending graduate school at the University of Rochester. 

The Summer Scholars program is a 10-week research intensive program that includes working under the direct mentorship of one of our many research faculty members, as well as participation in research/educational seminars and presentations on applying to graduate school and career development. The program is designed for students from populations underrepresented in the School of Medicine & Dentistry who are interested in a PhD degree in the Biological or Biomedical Sciences and for students with a potential interest in attending graduate school at the University of Rochester.
