Since its inception in 1940, the program has been a way to apply classroom and lab experience to real-world scenarios. The program has given many talented students hands-on experience in the clinical theater. Students work side by side with mentors while becoming part of the research process.

The VRC annually selects one or two students for the program.

The VRC laboratory facility is operated by the Foundation and has been on the grounds of the National Institute of Standards and Technology, a federal government research campus, since 1928. The lab conducts unique research in cutting-edge fields of biomaterial and tissue engineering technologies.

Students interested in learning more about the program or application process should contact Gretchen Duppins, the Summer Scholars Fellowship Program coordinator, at Visit to learn more about the VRC.
