To prospective BSRP 2021 participants:
The application for our 2021 cohort is open. Though we are planning to hold an on-site experience, we are monitoring the impacts of COVID-19 and will transition to virtual programming if necessary.
The Broad Summer Research Program (BSRP) is an intensive nine-week summer research opportunity designed for undergraduates with a commitment to biomedical research and an interest in genomics. BSRP has a strong record of success in helping students to nurture their passion for research and succeed in graduate school and scientific careers. Students spend the summer performing original computational or experimental-based research in labs across the Broad's research areas, from cancer to infectious disease to computational biology. At the program's conclusion, students deliver oral and poster presentations on their research projects.
BSRP features a rich curriculum outside the lab that emphasizes communication, collaborative problem-solving, graduate school preparation, and demystifying scientific careers. Our curriculum includes an intensive scientific communication course, seminars with leading scientists from Harvard and MIT, a GRE prep course, and weekly workshops focused on the graduate school application process, professional and personal development, and diversity and inclusion in the sciences.
BSRP is funded by the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) to help increase diversity in the sciences. The program is open to students with a demonstrated commitment to promoting diversity and inclusion in STEM disciplines. Students from groups that are underrepresented in the sciences are especially encouraged to apply. These groups include Native Americans or Alaska Natives, Blacks or African Americans, Asians or Asian Americans, Hispanics or Latinxs, Native Hawaiians or Other Pacific Islanders, as well as individuals with disabilities.
