Summer research at Boston University

Research opportunities available in biology, chemistry, psychology, engineering and computer science:
Each summer, 10-20 outstanding students conduct full-time research in a BU lab. Normally, 2-3 positions are reserved for Boston University students, who act as peer mentors to the other participants. All remaining positions are offered to students from other colleges and universities, particularly those without plentiful research opportunities. 
SURF is designed to encourage graduate education in the sciences for talented undergraduate students, especially those from minority groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences: African-American, Hispanic, Native American/Native Alaskan, Pacific Islander/Native Hawaiian/Polynesian, Asian (excluding Asian Indian, Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Filipino, and Thai).

Mount Sinai Summer Research

"Mount Sinai School of Medicine, located in New York City, offers summer research internships to outstanding undergraduate students who are planning to pursue an MD/PhD or a PhD and who are interested in doing research at a leading biomedical institution. The Summer Undergraduate Research Program (SURP) at Mount Sinai is a 10-week program that begins in June every year. 
This year SURP will begin on June 10, 2013. SURP fellows receive intensive research training in a cutting-edge biomedical laboratory, thus gaining an insider’s perspective into Mount Sinai graduate programs and academic life. The fellowship includes free housing and a $3,500 stipend."

Student Educational Enrichment Program (SEEP) at the GA Health Sciences University

SEEP is a 7-week program that aims to "increase the number of underrepresented physicians in the workforce, train culturally competent physicians and create a diverse academic and medical community".

SEEP has two versions:
- non-residential, for high school students
- residential, for college students and recent graduates (some positions available to non-GA students)

Note that  "High school students who are selected for participation in SEEP will be responsible for their daily transportation to and from the program. College SEEP is a residential program primarily for Georgia residents; however, a limited number of non-Georgia residents will be considered for participation."
