Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy


The primary goal of the Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy at City of Hope is to provide young people (high school and university students) with an opportunity for a "hands-on" research experience. This program seeks to find students possessing exceptional potential for performing biomedical research. Summer Academy students design and work on their own research projects in areas of their specific interests. City of Hope faculty members act as mentors providing valuable guidance and support, while also encouraging independent thought and exploration.


Must be at least 16 years old before their internships, a high school student, U.S. citizens or permanent residents, complete the online application by the deadline, and most students submit additional materials such as transcripts, letters of recommendation and resumes, but these are not required.
