PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The Sagrado-MIT Pre-College Summer Program is a summer internship and mentoring program designed for high school students in grades 9 (freshman), 10 (sophomore), and 11 (juniors) who are interested in pursuing a career in science, technology, engineering and/or math (STEM) with a focus in neuroscience. The program provides its young scholars with interactive seminars and hands-on activities to learn about STEM careers, research methods, career development, effective communication skills, and college applications, among others.  

Scholars will spend 2 weeks at the University of Sagrado Corazón (Puerto Rico) where they will interact with scientists and professors from Puerto Rico, and 2 weeks at an academic institution in Cambridge or Boston (e.g. Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT], Harvard University) , where they will be exposed to different research laboratories, world-renowned scientists, and a variety of educational opportunities for young people in STEM. By the end of the summer, the scholars will have a greater understanding of the rich diversity of career paths in STEM and tools that will increase their confidence in achieving a successful career, as well as a network of mentors and advisors who will continue to provide support after the program concludes. Overall, this program will provide Puerto Rican young students with opportunities and experiences that will allow them to be better prepared to pursue a career in STEM, while also supporting diversity and inclusion in STEM.
