The Rockefeller University's Summer Science Research Program (SSRP) is designed to offer intellectually curious, highly motivated high school students with a strong aptitude in the life or physical sciences a total-immersion experience in laboratory research. Each year, approximately 35 outstanding high school students are chosen from a large number of applicants. Students are matched to a lab according to their stated field of interest and are individually mentored by graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, or lab heads. These mentors volunteer to design and supervise individualized summer projects for their students. The seven-week program will run from June 23 through August 7, 2014. Students must be 16 years old at the start of the program in order to participate.

Stipends are available for students demonstrating need. The SSRP does not provide room and board to its participants, and applicants come exclusively from the Tri-State Area (NY, NJ, CT).
