February 4, 2013 Leave a comment

The Emory University School of Medicine is now accepting registrations for the 2013 Summer Science Academy, open to students who will be in high school in the 2013-14 school year.

The academy, which is operated by the Office of Multicultural Medical Student Affairs, is an effort to open the world of science to girls and members of minority groups, who are statistically under-represented in scientific professions. However, all students are welcome, without regard for gender,  race or ethnicity.

The two-week program offers lectures, labs and field experiences in scientific areas including chemistry, biology, genetics and human disease. Students can attend a day program or choose a residential program and live on the Emory University campus.

The deadline to apply for the residential program is March 15. Applicants will be selected based on their interest level, grades and letters of recommendation.

For the day program, registration is first-come, first-served.

Financial assistance may be available.
