Teen Science Ambassador Program

The Teen Science Ambassador program is an internship offered by the Youth Collaborative for individuals from groups that are underrepresented in STEM and have a passion for science. Ambassadors will join our team for weekly meetings at the Medical University of South Carolina, located downtown Charleston.

We will cover topics such as clinical research, developmental neuroscience, addiction science, résumé building, and professional development during our meetings. Each ambassador will also prepare and present a research exploration project.

We will provide our Ambassadors with dinner, travel assistance, and compensation.

Apply before 5/1/2022 to be considered for our Fall 2022 cohort.
