The Translational Research Internship Program at the University of Pennsylvania provides mentored research experiences in clinical and translational sciences to undergraduate students from Bryn Mawr College, Florida A&M University, Franklin & Marshall College, Haverford College, Howard University, Lincoln University, Swarthmore College, the University of Pennsylvania, and the University of Puerto Rico. Internships are sponsored by the NIH Clinical and Translational Sciences Award and are 10 weeks in duration, starting May 25, 2021 and ending July 30, 2021. The program provides on-campus housing and a stipend of $3,900.

The application for Summer 2021 is due Friday, February 12th. 

Due to the fluid situation with COVID19 we are working with the Penn administration and our colleagues to determine the best format (in person vs virtual vs hybrid) for TRIP 2021. Regardless of the format, we are well-prepared for a successful summer. In the meantime, we enthusiastically encourage you to apply and check back in with us. If you have any questions please reach out to Dr. Carsten Skarke at cskarke@pennmedicine.upenn.edu.
