Fred Hutch Summer High School Internship Program

Fred Hutch Summer High School Internship Program

Application Deadline:  March 31st, 2023 at 11:59 pm PST

The Summer High School Internship Program (SHIP) is a competitive, eight-week, full-time paid internship for rising 12th graders. The program is specifically designed for students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical science. Selected interns attend an orientation day, then begin the internship with two weeks of hands-on training on laboratory safety techniques and skills in the Fred Hutch Training Labs.  For the remaining six weeks, interns are paired and immersed in mentored activities in a Fred Hutch research group in Seattle. Interns also participate in research seminars, attend professional development workshops focused on college and careers, and enjoy social activities with their teams and peers. The program culminates with intern presentations to the Fred Hutch community.

The 2023 program will run from Monday, June 26, through Friday, August 18. Students must be able to commit to the entire period to participate.

We are planning on holding the 2023 program on campus in Seattle. There will not be a virtual component.

The application portal will be online here on February 1 and close at 11:59 pm on March 31.
