Summer Student Program Funding

Each year, the Summer Student Program is funded by grants and philanthropy.

The Jackson Laboratory is deeply grateful for the many individuals and organizations that generously support the Summer Student Program each year through philanthropy. We are honored to receive contributions and endowments from program alumni, community members, and local and national organizations, which ensures this program continues to provide education and mentorship to future generations of biomedical professionals.

The Jackson Laboratory also receives ongoing support through planned gifts from our members of the Society for Discover. Many of these members have chosen to designate their future gifts to the Summer Student Program.

The Summer Student Program is also supported by grants from the National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation.
