Education & Training
The Fred Hutch offers two on-campus programs for high school students during the summer. These programs give students from backgrounds underrepresented in biomedical science the opportunity to explore, clarify and strengthen their research-related career interests.
This eight-week, full-time paid internship for high school students includes one week of hands-on training in laboratory techniques and safety skills followed by seven weeks of supervised shadowing and training in a Fred Hutch faculty member’s research lab. Interns will also attend weekly workshops and seminars and make a presentation during the final week.

Pathways Researcher Explorers is a two-week full-time immersion program for rising 10th and 11th graders. This program introduces students to cancer research and careers with hands-on laboratory activities in our training lab, group discussions with experts, and a culminating project. Participant support costs provided.
Students with disabilities, from racial and ethnic groups traditionally underrepresented in health sciences, and from economically disadvantaged backgrounds are especially encouraged to apply.
