January 28, 2014 Leave a comment

SHARP (Summer HIV/AIDS Research Program) is a 12-week summer program for current undergraduate and community college students. The program is organized around a mentored research project, seminars and workshops led by researchers based at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and networking opportunities with other students and young investigators.

SHARP seeks to recruit students from communities that are generally underrepresented in the field of research, including African Americans, Latinos and Latinas, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders, as well as students from disadvantaged backgrounds, those who have a disability, and those who identify as transgender, lesbian, gay, or bisexual (LGBT). Ideal candidates are typically those who are considering conducting social or biomedical research that addresses health disparities as part of their career and also have an interest in HIV and populations at risk.

More information about the program is available on the SHARP website: www.sharpinternship.org, and through two info sessions held in early February; these opportunities sessions are listed on the website as well.  Interested students must submit a completed Statement of Interest form, resume, college transcripts (unofficial are accepted) and 2 letters of recommendation by Friday, February 21st. If students have questions that are not answered on the SHARP website, they can send an email to info@sharpinternship.org.
