HSCI Internship Program (HIP)


The Harvard Stem Cell Institute Internship Program provides non-Harvard undergraduate students with a focused and challenging summer research experience in a cutting-edge stem cell science laboratory. Interns are exposed to different professional options within the scientific arena through a stem cell seminar series, a career pathways presentation, and a weekly stem cell companion course. The deadline is on 3 February 2020.

Opportunity for Youth

The program will take place on June 8 – August 14, 2020. Students will present their summer research findings, both orally and in poster format, at the HIP Symposium—a requirement of all program participants.

A stipend of $5,000.00 will be provided, and this is intended to cover transportation, meals, and personal expenses related to participation in this program. Students, especially international students with J-1 visa requirements, will require evidence of greater personal financial resources to support their time at Harvard.

Main criteria

  • This undergraduate internship program is open to rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors who express a strong interest in stem cell biology;
  • Candidates must be enrolled in a program in the natural sciences. Applicants may be from any college or university across the United States and internationally;
  • Previous research experience in a biological laboratory is highly desirable, but not required.

Harvard University will sponsor the visas for international students who are selected for this program.
