NYSCF University

Each year, approximately ten diverse, high-achieving undergraduate and graduate students are selected to work in New York City as part of NYSCF University, a ten week unique summer enrichment internship program that provides students a rare glimpse into the fast-paced world of stem cell research, insight into life at an entrepreneurial nonprofit research institute, exposure to career opportunities in science, and connections to valuable professional and peer networks.

Participants have the opportunity to gain direct experience with stem cells and science through joining one of two program tracks – by conducting scientific research at the NYSCF Research Institute or by joining one of the teams at the office headquarters, which range from scientific programs to communications and government relations to external affairs, among others.
