During the 10-week scholarship program, Nemours research faculty will guide students through the process of formulating and testing hypotheses, interpreting data and communicating results.
Participation is required throughout the program. Projects sponsored by the program involve bench science and applied (clinical) research. Scholarship participants are matched with mentors — leading researchers and pediatric specialists at Nemours — according to student's expressed interest in the projects, the student's background and interest in the student by the mentors.
Numerous enrichment activities integral to the program include:
- Pediatric lectures
- Pediatric seminars
- Participation in student-led activities such as a journal club
- Opportunities for clinical shadowing
On the final day of the program, a mandatory symposium gives summer research students opportunities to present their research activities to the Nemours professional community, family and friends.
