Scholarship Information

The Summer Online Research Program is committed to serving high school students regardless of their ability to pay. The 2022 summer program is offering scholarships to qualified applicants from low-income families who attend a high school in underserved areas of Southern California. Tax forms will be required prior to acceptance.

Scholarships offered are limited, and the following criteria are used to determine scholarship eligibility:

  • Quality of the scholarship essay: It is important that the student demonstrates how their diversity and/or experiences related to financial hardships has motivated them to make contributions to the society as a healthcare provider or researcher.
  • Come from a family with low income. We use a percentage of the Federal Poverty Level as the income criteria for program participation.

Applicants must also indicate whether they want to be considered for the summer program if a scholarship is not awarded.

To apply for a scholarship, please complete and return the following items:

  • Apply for scholarship here
  • You must complete the regular application in addition to the scholarship application.
  • High school transcripts (either official or unofficial) - must have a minimum unweighted GPA of 3.3 out of 4
  • 2020, or 2021 Tax information
