Discovery to Cure High School Internship
The program exposes students to laboratory research and promotes interest in science and medicine. Rising high school seniors spend six weeks working in a laboratory with a research scientist, utilizing research techniques such as gel electrophoresis, RTPCR, immunohistochemistry, and electron microscopy. Since its inception in 2003, a total of over 260 high school students, undergraduates, and high school teachers have successfully completed the Program. Several interns have presented their research at science fairs and approximately 20% of student interns have published their findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Pathways Summer Scholars Program
Pathways Summer Scholars is a free two-week summer science day program for 100 rising 10th, 11th, and 12th grade Yale Pathways students. Each summer, Pathways Summer Scholars will have the opportunity to select from a variety of STEM workshops, collaboratively designed and taught by Yale faculty and graduate students. Summer 2016’s new workshop topics include, but are not limited to, green chemistry, web development and coding, neurobiology, consciousness, biochemistry, solar cell building, and more. Current Yale students serve as teaching assistants and mentors in the program. Rising Pathways seniors are also eligible to apply to the residential program, living in the Yale student dormitories, and taking part in college prep programming, in addition to attending STEM workshops during the day.

Shafer Family Scholarships for Yale University Summer Session
Shafer Scholars are rising high school seniors who attend New Haven public schools and are nominated by their high school guidance counselors to enroll in a five-week Yale summer session program. A scholarship from the Shafer family of New Haven provides full tuition for two courses, room and board, a book allowance, and a stipend for each student. Students take Yale College courses in the company of college students and are able to earn college credits. Shafer Scholars live on campus in one of Yale’s residential colleges for the duration of their program and have the opportunity to participate in the co-curricular, recreational, and social programs with students from other high schools and colleges from across the country and the world.
Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP)
Yale School of Medicine serves as one of the twelve Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP) sites, a national program of The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Yale SMDEP provides an intensive six week exposure to science, clinical medicine, and career counseling for motivated first and second year college students and graduates who are considering a career in medicine. Approximately 80 students attend the Yale SMDEP each summer.
For more information, visit the Yale SMDEP website.
Summer Science Research Institute
The Summer Science Research Institute (SSRI) connects highly qualified New Haven high school students with science research internships at Yale. During the summer, students participate in a series of workshops and activities to supplement their internship experiences and enhance their scientific research skills. Students are paired with Yale undergraduate mentors, who provide one-on-one guidance throughout the six-week internship experience.

Yale Center for Analytical Sciences Young Scholars Program
The Young Scholars program brings together a collaborative group of 12-14 high school students, primarily from the greater New Haven area. For two weeks in the summer, students participate in an intensive introduction to Biostatistics, learn in a statistical modeling program known as “R,” and tour aspects of public health. Young Scholars provides an intensive, hands-on science curriculum that emphasizes discovery through lab tours, critical thinking and problem-solving, lunch lectures, as well as faculty led “R” programming sessions.

Yale Summer Program in Astrophysics
YSPA is a 4-week residential research and enrichment program for 32 rising high school juniors and seniors who are interested in math, science, computer programming, and other tech fields. Students take classes in physics, math, and astronomy, complete a scientific research project using telescopes at Yale, learn the basics of computer programming and data science, and present their results at the end of the program. YSPA has a small student-to-faculty ratio (32:6), so students get to know each other and the faculty very well.
