Every summer since 2000, the Hepatitis B Foundation has recruited outstanding college students for its Summer Internship Program, located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania (25 miles north of Philadelphia).
Interns work with professional scientists from the Hepatitis B Foundation and its research affiliate, the Institute for Hepatitis and Virus Research, and the Drexel Institute of Drexel University College of Medicine. Valuable mentoring and supervision of individual projects is provided for each student. At the conclusion of the summer, interns present their projects to the entire faculty in a special seminar.
The Summer Internship Program is supported, in part, by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education and funding from the Merck Community Foundation.
This is a 10-week summer program that runs from June 3 to August 9, 2013. Students entering their junior or senior year of college in Fall 2013 are eligible to apply. Housing is the responsibility of the student. A $3500.00 stipend will be paid for the 10 week period.
The Student Internship Program has established an excellent record of accomplishment. To date, there are 84 Program alumni who have completed their undergraduate studies. All have enrolled in either professional (medical or veterinary) or graduate school or have found employment in the biomedical field in either biopharma or in academia.
To apply, please submit between January 07, 2013 and February 15, 2013
The deadline for all submissions is February 15, 2013.
Send all materials by e-mail, fax, or regular mail to:
Ms. Jackie Corwell
