The Institute for Health, Health Care Policy, and Aging Research offers Project L/EARN, an exciting program designed to increase graduate school enrollment among students from groups that are traditionally under-represented in health-related graduate programs, such as students from economically disadvantaged families; first-generation college-attendees; African-American, Latino, Native American, and Pacific Islanders.


We invite sophomore and junior students with an interest in health, mental health, or health services research to apply to the Project L/EARN Summer research training program. Students from any U.S. college or university are welcome to apply. Applicants must satisfy all four of these criteria:

  • have at least one full academic year left to complete their undergraduate degree,
  • have completed at least one course in statistics or quantitative methods by the time the summer program begins. Click here for list of approved courses.
  • be a U.S. citizen or permanent U.S. resident attending a U.S. university.
  • and be a member of at least one of the groups specified above as under- represented in graduate education
