2015 Neurology High School Scholars Program

Division of Child Neurology at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia| 2015 Neurology High School Scholars Program

Do you know a high school senior or junior who is looking for an exciting opportunity this summer?
The Division of Child Neurology at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia is happy to announce the start of this year's annual Neurology High School Scholars Program (NHSSP)!
The NHSSP program begins as an essay competition for eligible local high school students which will result in a paid summer program in the Child Neurology Department at CHOP.
Two (2) high school students will be selected and participate in a basic science research project under the close guidance of a mentor in neurology/ neuroscience.
Project Description:
Each student applicant will submit an essay which expresses the reasons for that student’s interest in Child Neurology. If Child Neurology is the field the student wishes to pursue as a future career, the student will describe how participation in the Neurology High School Scholars (NHSSP) program will further that career goal. The top two essayists will be selected as a Neurology High School Scholar and spend a summer participating in a basic research project in Child Neurology.
  • Each selected scholar will be assigned to a Child Neurology Faculty mentor and given a specific research project (chosen by the project mentor).
  • Select runners up will have the opportunity to participate in other Child Neurology driven projects.
  • The competition will take place during the months of January through March of 2015.
  • The deadline to submit essays will be March 31, 2015.
  • Winners will be announced in April, 2015.
  • The paid program in Child Neurology will begin on June 29, 2015.
  • Each Neurology High School Scholar will be paid $1,000.
  • All applicants must be eligible to work in the United States.
