The Scientific Enrichment Month Program, brought to you by YES in THE HEIGHTS at the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer Center (HICCC), is a free virtual program for grades 6 to 12 and undergraduate students held in the summer.

Students are required to apply for the program by June 26th, 2023. 

This month-long program takes place in July and focuses on cancer education, scientific enrichment, and professional development. Students who participate listen and engage in a variety of lectures on topics like how to develop a hypothesis, what is cancer research, cancer health inequities, and public health. Students also join sessions on professional development with topics like resume writing, personal statements, interviewing skills, and public speaking. 

Those who participate in a specified number of sessions across the month have the opportunity of being granted an HICCC Certificate.
