Excellence in Science Education and Learning Program (ExSEL II)
The Howard Hughes Excellence in Science Education and Learning II Program (ExSEL II) is open to students only the summer following successfully completing the ExSEL Program.
ExSEL II is a 9-week program in which the 7 best students who apply from the prior ExSEL graduating class are chosen to work on their own research project in a mentor’s lab for 40 hours per week. Students are matched with a mentor at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center or UC College of Medicine in the research area of their choice from basic science to clinical research.
ExSEL II students also give a Powerpoint presentation of their research projects at the ExSEL student graduation banquet, and present a poster of their work in the Capstone poster competition event with students from summer programs throughout the University Medical Center.
ExSEL II students also have biweekly group luncheons and are invited to participate in all Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) Program activities. Students are paid a stipend equivalent to a full time minimum wage salary.
