Application

Application Eligibility:

  • Must be a high school student (9th-12th grade) able to make the commitment to attend the listed program dates
  • Students who have previously completed the HPREP program are not eligible to reapply
  • We encourage students who were not admitted in previous years to reapply in subsequent years

The application for 2016-2017 is now closed. We are currently reviewing applications and will send our acceptance notifications by email at the end of October. Please check back early September 2017 for the next cycle.

Program Dates: 11/12/16 – 2/11/17

We strongly encourage students to use the online application, but a paper application is available if you are unable to submit your application online through the Submittable website. You can print, fill out the paper application, and mail it to us. Please check back here next year for a link to download the document.

Note to teachers: We seek students who are motivated and have high potential but face significant barriers to entering the fields of science or medicine. Please also encourage students who you believe may be under-performing to apply as it is one of our goals to help these students achieve their potential.

Application criteria: We select applicants based on something we call “distance traveled” — in other words, given the applicant’s background, has the applicant made the most out of his or her situation? We also select students based on their level of motivation in their academic and extracurricular endeavors. The essays are very important in helping us to understand these aspects, and therefore are the most important components of the application.

For current doctoral, medical, dental, and MPH students, please review the information in our Volunteer section if you are interested in getting involved. No application is required.
