About the Research Experience for High School Students

The Research Experience for High School Students (REHSS) Program is an intensive, 6-week scientific research internship at Vanderbilt University, centering on full immersion in a Vanderbilt University or Vanderbilt University Medical Center research lab. Students engage in an independent research project under the mentorship of a research faculty member at Vanderbilt. Rising high school seniors interested in a career in the fields of science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) should apply.


Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, REHSS will not occur in summer 2021.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Please check back in February 2022 for program updates.
