South Carolina Continuing Umbrella of Research Experience (SC CURE) Program for Underrepresented High School Students is a two-year program taught by Hollings Cancer Center scientists for rising sophomores and juniors at Burke High School.
SC CURE allows underrepresented students from Burke High School to explore a career in biomedical cancer research. Rising sophomores and juniors are offered a number of learning opportunities focused on cancer biology, epidemiology, and health disparities. The two-year Program consists of cancer-focused courses and enrichment activities including a hands-on research rotation at the Hollings Cancer Center, as well as cultural enrichment activities at the Wadmalaw Community Center and Beaufort’s Penn Center. The Program is designed to stimulate and facilitate local students' interest in cancer research and cancer health disparities research.
Applications for the 2017-2018 SC CURE Program are no longer being accepted at this time.
