Vanderbilt Summer Science Academy (VSSA)

 Now accepting applications for summer 2016!

The VSSA hosts approximately 70 students each summer from institutions across the country. The VSSA offers research seminars, a wide range of enrichment activities and lectures as well as social activities for those undergraduates engaged in research on campus during the summer.

There are two major tracks:
Basic Science Programs for undergraduates interested in careers in research (aspiring PhD and MD/PhD students).
Undergraduate Clinical Research Internship Program for undergraduates who wish to pursue a career in medicine (aspiring MD and MD/PhD students).

Participation in any one of the Summer Science Academy programs is a valuable learning experience that enhances a student's skills and makes him or her more competitive for acceptance to frontline graduate programs.

Application deadline: February 1st
