The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) is a 10-week competitive summer internship program for undergraduate students interested in careers in the biomedical sciences. The internship is designed to provide students with theoretical knowledge, practical training in academic research, and critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty. Full time immersion in a lab or research group allows interns to experience science and discovery first hand.

The program runs June 5 to August 11, 2023.  Interns will receive a $5,000 stipend. Free housing will be available. Need-based travel awards may be requested and will be distributed based on availability. Additional information is available on the website.

CRISSP is a great opportunity for University of Pennsylvania students. Students with competitive grades and career goals consistent with a future in biomedical research are encouraged to apply. Up to 25 students will be accepted.
