The Jackson Laboratory Summer Student Program
The Summer Student Program is for students who want to immerse themselves in genetics and genomics research. It emphasizes laboratory discovery, communication of knowledge, and professional growth. Students participate in an ongoing research program with the support of an experienced scientific mentor.

All students receive a stipend of $6,000 for the 10-week
program, including room and board at HighSeas (Maine program).
