City of Hope's Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy

City of Hope's Eugene and Ruth Roberts Summer Student Academy gives curious and hardworking students the opportunity to learn about science by actually doing it. Unlike traditional high school or college classes where the course of study is entirely determined by the instructor, City of Hope’s summer program students select their own research project according to their individual areas of interest. Selected participants then spend 10 weeks working full-time as a member of a biomedical research team.

Summer students design and work on their own research projects in areas of their specific interests. City of Hope faculty members act as mentors who provide valuable guidance and support while simultaneously encouraging independent thought and exploration. Summer students work closely with postdoctorates, graduate students and lab personnel of the Irell & Manella Graduate School of Biological Sciences. Program participants also communicate their research findings to their peers and instructors in a weekly student seminar series. We also mentor scientific writing by having students produce a written report at the end of their project. An important objective of the program is to develop vital oral and written communication skills, which are so important in the world of seminars, colloquia, manuscript publication and grant writing that is critical to graduate student and postgraduate life.

Along with attending their laboratory weekly meeting, students attend the program weekly meetings and seminars. Faculty speakers educate students on various scientific topics such as neural stem cells, plant signaling pathways and DNA repair, as well as career-focused discussions regarding future directions as scientists and doctors. Some students give an oral presentation on their research project focusing on the objectives and significance of their project, methods, results, conclusions and projections for future directions of the project. Student presenters describe their research in an organized presentation and the students attending the meeting are further educated on the various research topics conducted at City of Hope.

Deadlines: The deadline for the online application and supplemental materials is March 14th, 2013.

The Ronald H. Brown Center’s mission is to engage in legal studies, research and outreach focusing on issues that affect the lives of underrepresented people while simultaneously educating law students to be leaders on issues of racial, economic and social justice. The Prep Program aims to encourage students from underrepresented backgrounds − often the first members of their family to attend college − to apply to law school and pursue the study and practice of law.

Through a rigorous selection process, each participating undergraduate college selects sophomores to attend a nine-week summer program during which they take law school courses taught by St. John’s faculty, engage in internships with judges and lawyers in a variety of practice settings and receive ample guidance on the law school admissions process.

Students who successfully complete the program for sophomores can apply to participate in the program for juniors the following summer, when they take a comprehensively designed LSAT prep course, attend motivational workshops and work with a legal writing professor to write their personal statements.

College students who have a genuine interest in attending law school and becoming lawyers, have a grade point average of 3.0 or better, have completed between 45 and 75 college credits as of June 1, 2013, and who are either low-income or first-generation college students or members of a group underrepresented in law school education are eligible.
