The School of Health Professions at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center would like to announce that applications open TODAY through Jan. 20, 2022 for the 62nd Annual Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation High School Summer Program in Biomedical Sciences June 6‑Aug. 12, 2022.

Students graduating during the first week of the program are eligible to apply and if selected will join beginning June 13 for 9 weeks.

Attached is our informational flyer for potential applicants to the program (current seniors in a Texas public, private, charter or home schools graduating prior to the start of the program). For more information visit our web page ( or contact me directly. In short, we will select up to seven students and pair each to an MD Anderson faculty member. The participants will work during normal business hours in their mentor’s laboratory working on research.

Students will receive a scholarship to help defray expenses during the program. The program does not provide for housing, parking, transportation, food, or otherwise.

The Summer Experience program is anticipating typical laboratory research operations on campus for summer 2022, however, a contingency is in place for part-time remote working opportunities under our mentors if MD Anderson initiates a lockdown through next summer. We will inform applicants of any decisions when they are made.

No new applications will be taken after Jan. 20, 2022. We will offer invitations on Feb. 14, 2022.
