CRISSP About Photo

“CRISSP is the ideal program for students interested in research and/or medical careers, because it serves as a gateway to new opportunities.”


The CHOP Research Institute Summer Scholars Program (CRISSP) is a competitive internship designed to provide undergraduate students with theoretical knowledge, practical training in academic research, and critical exposure to pediatric-focused research career trajectories under the direct mentorship of CHOP faculty.

The Goals of CRISSP are to:

  • Promote academic research as a rewarding and exciting career choice
  • Provide practical training in conducting and communicating research
  • Inspire the next generation of leaders in child health and wellness

Full-time immersion in a lab or research group enables CRISSP scholars to experience science and discovery first hand!
