Thank you for your interest in the ACMG Foundation for Genetic and Genomic Medicine’s (ACMGF) Summer Genetic Scholars program (SGSP). The application cycle for 2024 has concluded. The Foundation is extremely grateful to BioMarin and Ultragenyx whose support will allow 12 students to participate in the summer of 2024. To view the 2024 cohort, please click on the “2024 SGSP Cohort” button on the right of the screen. Please note that the program timeline has also been updated.
The Summer Genetic Scholars program is a popular Foundation program that allows students who have completed their first year of medical school to work directly with a medical geneticist mentor. The six-week program educates future physicians about medical genetics and genomics in a “real world” setting and thanks to support from BioMarin and Ultragenyx, participating students receive a stipend.
SGSP was started in 2011 and has sponsored almost 175 scholars at more than 30 different institutions around the country since then. This program has a lasting impact on participants.
