Fred Hutch Summer High School Internship Program

Fred Hutch Summer High School Internship Program

Application Deadline:  March 31, 2022 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 one week of hands-on training on laboratory safety techniques and skills in the Fred Hutch Training Labs.  For the remaining seven weeks, interns are paired and immersed in mentored activities in a Fred Hutch research group in Seattle. Interns also participate in research education 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 program runs from Monday, June 27 through Friday, August 19, 2022. Students must be able to commit to this entire period in order to participate.

The application portal is open and closes on March 31, 2022 at 11:59 pm PST.

While we are planning to hold an on-site experience in 2022, we are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and assessing the safest way for students and staff to conduct the program next summer. We will post all relevant program updates here.
