Type Basic Science Research, High School Students


Each summer the Buck Institute for Research on Aging provides  an in-depth internship program to give local high school students the tools and mentorship necessary to excel in science and mathematics. With 20 research labs participating, students have the opportunity to explore research involving the aging process and aging-related diseases. Students are encouraged to visit Buck Institute faculty websites to read about the research being conducted at the Buck and to indicate an area of interest when applying for the program.

There is a charge of $2,500 per intern to cover the Institute’s program costs over and above the generous support of program sponsors. Full and partial scholarships are available to students completing 10th and 11th grades based on financial need.
