A committee of Gates Center faculty and staff will select highly qualified undergraduates to work full-time in laboratories located at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

GSIP is a full-time training program that spans 11 weeks from May to August. 

In addition to working in Gates Center member's laboratory, interns will participate in weekly GSIP seminars, social events and community service. They will also present their summer research project in a poster session at the Final Day Program.

We are beginning our ninth program year.  The eleven-week, full-time program runs from May 22 - August 4. We continue to offer a seminar series, professional development, and workshops, as well as social events and community service opportunities. Students will present their research at our Final day Program.

The stipend for the program is $6,500, paid in bi-monthly installments via direct deposit. In addition, GSIP Interns will be reimbursed for up to $500 round trip for any travel costs based on submitted receipts.
