These internships are part of the Health, Humanism and Society Scholars (HHASS) program, which serves undergraduates in the humanities and in the Social Sciences. The HHASS program identifies faculty and researchers at various institutions in the Texas Medical Center and NASA who are interested in mentoring undergraduates and are currently researching topics in the social sciences, education, and/or medical humanities. Students are matched with projects, then spend a full academic year assisting with research. Students gain experience in a variety of medical and public health settings, research institutes, and centers.
These internships may be held during the academic year (in which case academic credit is earned) or as a professional internship during the summer (with a $3,000 stipend and no academic credit). There are specific requirements for each option.
For summer, non-credit internships, applications are submitted through RICElink.
