Neurology High School Scholars Project

The summer internship program has been cancelled for this summer due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We anticipate the program will resume in the summer of 2021. The application for the 2021 internship program will be available on this website in January.

If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact the program coordinator, Ashley Rees-Jones, as reesjonesa@email.chop.edu.

About the Program

The High School Scholars Program offers the opportunity for three high school students to complete a five-week paid internship ($1,000 stipend). The internship involves working closely with a neurologist on a basic science or clinical research project, and shadowing physicians in clinic. Work hours will be determined between the student and mentor based on project needs. At the end of the five weeks, students will be expected to prepare a poster presentation outlining their project results and present the poster at a conference.

Interested in applying for 2020? The application will be available on this website starting in January, 2020.
