Summer Scholars examining a model of a human brain
The STAHR Scholars Program provides rising high school juniors, seniors, undergraduates, and post-baccalaureate students the opportunity to learn more about and prepare to become a health professional. The Scholars Program aims to strengthen students’ interest in health careers and develop students into competitive applicants for health programs.

Our Vision: The STAHR Scholars Program will empower each student as they progress on their journey into a health professional program. Students in the Scholars Program will experience tailored and purposeful learning, support, and activities to foster holistic growth. By building the foundations and skills for student self-efficacy and self-authorship, Scholars will be equipped with the knowledge and determination to accomplish their educational goals.

In order to better support students, the Scholars Program is transitioning from being a summer program to becoming a year-round program. The Scholars Program runs from June through May. Active participants in the program will receive financial support as stipends and/or scholarships.

Students can begin participating in the Scholars Program the summer prior to their junior year of high school (11th grade) all the way through collegiate-level students preparing for entry into a health professional program.
