Summer Sessions in the Biogen Community Lab
Biogen is again working with the MSYEP so that Cambridge students participating in that program who also wish to do a session in the Community Lab – can do that and get paid as a portion of their summer placement.

Also, they are changing our process a little this year. Previously it was a simple registration and "first-come, first-served"system. This year it is an application. However our intention is still to admit all Cambridge students who apply during the appropriate time frame (March 4-13) as long as their are spots in the session they request (and there should be as the only other students that are automatically in are those from Somerville.)

They will also be offering and advanced two-week session from August 1-12 for students who have previously participated in the summer program. We will contact all eligible students directly, but just wanted to let you know in  case you are asked about it. Learn more >>
