Faculty accept interns on a case-by-case basis. Undergraduates are highly encouraged to contact faculty directly about summer internships, research projects or honors thesis projects. We encourage contacts early in the school year, because available internships slots tend to fill up fast. Some financial support is available through endowments established for Stanford summer undergraduate internships, through Major Grants at Stanford (deadline March 1), and through faculty research grants. The Department of Biology, using funds from the office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education (VPUE), offers paid research internships to current Stanford undergraduates who want to spend the summer participating in ongoing faculty research projects to learn biological research methods (deadline February 1).
Undergraduates can obtain credits for working in a lab. The faculty occasionally accept local junior and senior high school level students who make arrangements through their schools. High school internships are unpaid. Be sure to read the faculty profiles to see if your interests match up with the type of research that is being done in the laboratories here at Hopkins. See slide show
Graduate students from other departments are able to do short term research projects at Hopkins adding more breadth to their thesis work.
