The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute is pleased to announce that applications for The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) are now open.

CRISSP is a 10-week internship designed to inspire undergraduate students to pursue careers in pediatric research and academic medicine through training in theoretical knowledge and research as well as critical exposure to pediatric-focused career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty. The goal of CRISSP is to provide a transformational summer by inspiring students to explore, create, discover, and innovate in areas related to child health and wellness. We welcome students with diverse backgrounds whose worldview will be expanded by learning together.

Thirty students will be selected for the 2023 program. All participants will have multiple opportunities for clinical shadowing and broad exposure to biomedical research careers. Students receive a $5,000 stipend and free housing in local dorms. Need-based travel awards may be requested and will be distributed based on availability. Application deadline is 11:59 p.m. (ET) Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2023.
