• Overview of the Summer Student Program:

    The Columbia VA Healthcare System hosts a Summer Student Program. Forty non-research middle and high school students will be invited to join the program. In addition, ten high school students will be chosen to participate in a hybrid research project which will also include assignments in different departments of the VA, field trips, and Stem and research activities. 

    Attached are the information letter, curriculum, and fillable application. The deadline for applications is April 26.  All applications received are electronic and time-stamped for accuracy, since it is first come-first served.  The ten high school students selected for research will have another application to fill out during orientation, and they will be selected based upon individual educational qualifications.

    The program will be Tuesday-Thursday from 8:00am-4:00pm, and will provide a $7.00 lunch ticket each day.  There will be many exciting lunch & learn activities planned for both groups, as well as a trip to tour the Clemson campus. There will also be sessions on applying for scholarships, and SAT readiness.

    The VA believes this program can be a life-changing opportunity for the students.
