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. 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 27 through August 11, 2016. Students must be 16 years old at the start of the program in order to participate.

Stipends may be awarded to students experiencing financial hardship and who meet all the attendance and research requirements of the SSRP. Students outside the Tri-State area may apply, however the SSRP is unable to provide housing, so it is the responsibility of the student to secure housing before the program begins.
