We are writing to tell you about an exciting summer research opportunity at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) for your underrepresented minority (URM) undergraduate rising juniors and seniors or first year medical students.  The Office for Multicultural Faculty Careers at BWH is recruiting its sixth cohort of scholars to participate in the Summer Training in Academic Research and Scholarship (STARS) Program.

Briefly, students are invited to join us for 8 weeks to engage in basic, clinical or translational research projects under the supervision of BWH faculty advisers.  As well as conducting research, students will also receive professional development training, meet faculty from across the hospital and medical school, and participate in social networking events.

The BWH STARS Program will cover students’ travel costs to and from Boston, cost of housing, selected meals and activities, and a Research Trainee stipend.

This is a great opportunity for your students to train in the Harvard Medical School environment. The application deadline is January 27, 2014 and students will be notified of their selection by March 3, 2014.

Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions at or call (617) 525-8356.

We look forward to hearing from you and your students.
