Sponsor a Summer Research Intern
A pledge of $6,000 provides a direct stipend to two students for the summer, allowing them to focus on their research project and the skills that can only be developed through an intensive, hands-on experience, working in the lab directly with our faculty.
Undergraduate research is a key component in the competitiveness of our graduates for acceptance into the best medical schools and graduate programs in the country. Our faculty benefit as well, by advancing their research programs and raising the profile of the Mount as a center of excellence in the sciences.
Your support of the Summer Research Internship Program helps ensure our students gain the experience they need and contributes to the success of the next generation of researchers, physicians, and health care professionals.
