Applications for the summer of 2022 will open in the fall of 2021.
The realities of summer 2021 have started to come into clearer focus. After much consideration and consternation, we do not believe we can safely mount an in-person program this summer.
Despite the challenges of running a remote program, we are dedicated to providing a meaningful research experience along with the professional development and community building that are central to the Gateways program.
Gateways 2021 will feature:
The program will begin on June 7. This will be a full-time commitment for 8-10 weeks (TBD); we will offer the full $6,000 financial compensation for the summer.
The mission of the Gateways to the Laboratory Program is to increase the number of students from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine and science who are prepared to become competitive applicants, successful MD-PhD students, and future leaders in biomedical research and academic medicine.

Who is eligible for the Gateways to the Laboratory Program?
College freshmen and sophomores who are US citizens or permanent residents and are from racial or ethnic backgrounds shown to be underrepresented in biomedical research, individuals from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, and/or individuals with disabilities, as described by the National Institutes of Health (NIH): https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-210.html
This summer program is for students who are seriously considering pursuing a career as a physician scientist. This is not an appropriate summer program for those students who know they only wish to attend medical school in the future.
How should I submit my application?
The Gateways to the Laboratory Program offers an on-line application through The Leadership Alliance.
