Center for Health Behaviors Research Summer Research Program

The Center for Health Behaviors Research High School Summer Research Program is an 8-week internship that provides high school students the opportunity to participate in health behaviors research at the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC in Roanoke, Virginia. Eligibility is focused on students from backgrounds that are underrepresented in science. The program encompasses a part- to full-time schedule and supports students with a competitive stipend. Applications are due April 15.

Please note that, unfortunately, we do not typically host students for “job shadowing” programs. We encourage high school students to engage with our research through our annual Brain School programming. Students are also welcome to attend the Maury Strauss Distinguished Public Lecture Series which are free scientific lectures open to members of the general public.
