The Teen Science Ambassadors internship, offered by the Youth Collaborative, is open to high school juniors and seniors with a passion for science.
The mission of the Teen Science Ambassador program is to encourage young people to pursue careers in the STEM field through hands-on research exploration, career preparation, college readiness, and mentorship. To support this mission, our team endeavors to maintain diversity among our Ambassadors and engage students from underrepresented groups in medicine.


Our ambassadors will learn about career opportunities in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), job skills, and learn from professionals and other students in the STEM fields.

Ambassadors will join our team for weekly meetings at MUSC. During our meetings, we will cover topics such as clinical research, developmental neuroscience, addiction science, résumé building, and professional development. Each week the ambassadors will complete an assignment that is related to the discussion topic. Lastly, each ambassador will prepare a research proposal.

This program is a great opportunity for students to gain exposure to clinical research. If you are a teen interested in STEM, please apply.
  • We offer 2 sessions per year with groups in the spring (Feb-May) and fall (August-November).
  • Weekly, in-person meetings are every Tuesday from 4:30 - 5:30 pm.
