Project L/EARN
The program is an intensive, hands-on summer research training internship for undergraduate students from groups that have been previously under-represented in graduate schools and health research. Eight to ten interns are selected annually from colleges and universities nationwide to participate in a ten-week residential internship at Rutgers University. During the summer, they obtain research skills and “hands-on” experience in health research through a combination of coursework on statistics, research methods, research writing, ethics and health topics and an individual research project under the guidance of a distinguished faculty mentor. Many continue to conduct research during the academic year with their summer mentor or a faculty researcher at their home institution. www.ihhcpar.rutgers.edu/projectlearn
