Summer Scholars Research Program

This is an annual, multi-disciplinary mentoring program for undergraduate and graduate students, which is carried out in The Schullian Way.  Mentees are known as Scholars. They focus on intensive research involving one or more of The Schull Institute's core fields of interest: genetics, public health informatics, and archival research.

Esteemed Partners


Supporting the institute in this and other programs are four active partners:

  • The University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics

  • The University of Texas School of Public Health

  • McGovern Historical Archives at the TMC Library

  • University of St. Thomas


Mentoring is provided by Fellows of The Institute as well as The Schull Institute Mentor Network.

Students Become Scholars

During the program's inaugural year, 2018, seven students from four universities participated. The schools were University of St. Thomas, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Texas School of Public Health, and the University of Texas School of Biomedical Informatics.

Interested students are encouraged to attend the Schull Institute Annual Invitational Conference. At the conference, they will meet the mentor groups and can apply for the summer research program positions.
