The Diversity Summer Internship Program (DSIP) was established in 1995 to provide an independent research experience in biomedical and/or public health research to undergraduate students under the direct mentoring of established Johns Hopkins researchers. During the ten-week program, interns work one-on-one with faculty on research projects in their field of interest and attend a health science seminar series. Students from underrepresented minority groups and those from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who are interested in careers in science, medicine or public health are encouraged to apply. DSIP provides a stipend and housing near the Johns Hopkins Homewood Campus.
DSIP offers internships at three Johns Hopkinsresearch settings:
