"It changed my life." Those four words are a multi-generational mantra for the hundreds of alumni whose interests, skills and successes in basic science research were stoked by participation as high school or college students in our popular Summer Student Program. For more than 80 years, we’ve brought young science students to Maine for hands-on research internships.
Meet some notable achievers
After working under the mentorship of our research scientists, many of the program’s alumni have gone on to achieve great things. Among them are three Nobel Prize winners: Howard Temin, David Baltimore and Jack Szostak.
Many alumni, including Baltimore, now a Jackson trustee, retain strong personal, professional and financial commitments to our Summer Student Program and to our National Council.
