American Heart Association – Stanford Cardiovascular Institute Undergraduate Summer Research Program

This summer research program at Stanford is funded by the American Heart Association and the Stanford Cardiovascular Institute (CVI). The program is 10 weeks long and is designed to train students enrolled in a 4-year undergraduate program majoring in a scientific discipline in cardiovascular research in the laboratories of CVI-affiliated faculty members.

Each student will receive a stipend of $7,000. The program dates are flexible (based on each student's academic commitments and availability), with the requirement that the student's program duration must include working in the assigned Stanford labs between June and August. This will allow the CVI to plan events fostering student interactions, meeting with a panel of faculty mentors, and to make oral/poster presentations of their research on a designated day.
