ADRC High School Scholars

So you want to be doctor, heath care provider or research scientist?

The ADRC High School Scholars Program is committed to supporting students in early adolescence to foster a progressive learning experience and enable high self-efficacy.

The ADRC High School Scholars program partners with underresourced NYC High Schools with eligible cohorts of underrepresented high students interested in science and medicine. Our program is underscored in Neurology but considers applicants with diverse scientific interests. The program recruits rising sophomores selected during the Spring semester of Freshman year.

Selection Criteria

The high school should support students with an expressed interest in medicine/health sciences careers who are rising high school sophomores (to be selected Spring of Freshman Year)

Application selection is based on the following criteria:

  • Recognized as a student showing promise by teachers or guidance counselor
  • Motivation to learn
  • Willingness and ability to commit to the program
  • Maturity
