Mentorship Opportunity at Deloitte for Underrepresented Students
This year, Deloitte Consulting LLP will be working with students on campus to establish a unique and diverse mentorship program to further student professional development known as the Deloitte Leadership, Allyship and Mentorship Program (DLAMP).

As part of the program, participants will be accepted into a national cohort of student leaders and paired with junior and senior-level mentors at Deloitte. Mentors will be the focal point of a participant’s network, and will help guide an experience that includes:
• Network building with Deloitte leaders based on industry and functional interests
• Career coaching and exposure to opportunities in consulting
• Preparing and practicing for application & interviews, including resume review and case practice
Students from underrepresented minority groups are highly encouraged to apply for this amazing opportunity! Invited participants will be paired with professionals across Deloitte Consulting representing a variety of functional and industry experiences. We are hosting an Info Session on 1/15, which students are highly encouraged to attend. Info Session and Application details can be found on Handshake!

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.
Applicants also must meet the following criteria:
