Apply for STaRS Internship Program

Applications for the STaRS 2024 Program are now closed! Applications will re-open for STaRS 2025 in September 2024.

STaRS 2024 will run from June 17, 2024 - August 2, 2024


Applications will be accepted from September 1, 2023 until  November 3, 2023 at 11:59 PM PST. The application must be completed in its entirety, including the letter of recommendation, in order to be considered. After the submission of your written application, you will be notified on whether or not you will be moving on to the interview phase.

The 7-week STaRS Internship is for high school and community college students considering careers in biomedical and biological sciences and/or healthcare. Students must be age 16 or older at the time of the program to apply. Students under 18 will require signed parental consent forms to work in the laboratory.  Interns are expected to commit to the entire 7-week internship. If your summer plans do not allow for a continuous 7-week commitment, we encourage you to apply during a summer when you can meet that requirement. Please, no exceptions.

Once accepted into the program, interns will be required to submit parental consent and complete several online training modules and forms.
