Opportunities for High School Students

 Update 2: 
 Summer internships at Fred Hutch. 

High school students are welcome to apply for an 8 week, paid summer research internship at Fred Hutch. The Hutch has an international reputation for its pioneering research in biological sciences, bone marrow and stem cell transplantation, cancer prevention, epidemiology, and biostatistics. 

Selected interns will spend 1 full week in training.  This includes hands-on training in laboratory safety techniques and skills in our Training Labs, designated safe labs for minors. Interns will then be paired and matched to a host mentor who will supervise them over the remaining 7 weeks on specific projects or activities in the host lab.  Interns also attend weekly workshops and seminars.  The internship culminates with a reflection presentation during the final week.  Interns receive a stipend.
Center for Innate Immunity (CIIID) Scholars internship program
The Center for Innate Immunity (CIIID) Scholars internship program is a 10-week hands-on lab experience at the University of Washington.  Students will join a CIIID lab for the summer and work towards completing a project in innate immunity. Interns will learn molecular and cell biology lab techniques from professional scientists, converse with experts in the field on their project, work through a cohesive project that culminates in presenting their findings to the CIIID group at the conclusion of the internship. This is a rare and unique opportunity for high school students to get real-world experience in a functioning biomedical research lab. The CIIID will host 1 – 3 highly engaged junior or senior level high school or rising undergraduate freshman students each summer. This program is designed to foster scientific literacy and an interest in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) disciplines, particularly biomedical sciences focused on infection and immunity. The intern will develop a basic toolkit of lab skills including lab techniques, lab safety, organization and lab notebook/records-keeping. 

This program is designed for highly engaged high school students entering their junior or senior year in high school that are local to the Seattle Metro area. Interns will be selected from a pool of highly qualified applicants.

Interns will receive a stipend of approximately $2700 to be disbursed in installments throughout the internship.
