STARS 2019 Schedule

Program Dates: June 23 - August 16

The STARS program is an intensive 8-week academy modeled on graduate school life. It includes 6-8 hours of faculty led research per day, student development workshops, a GRE (Graduate Records Exam) course and social activities.

In addition to a faculty mentor and a lab supervisor, each participant will be assigned a graduate student advocate/mentor. To complete the program, participants must participate in all courses, meetings and activities and make a 15-minute oral presentation of their research findings at the UC San Diego Summer Research Conference.
