Sommer Scholars

Enrichment Program


In addition to receiving a world-class education, Hopkins Sommer Scholars participate in a specially designed enrichment program. 

This series of co-curricular activities develops the scholars' personal skills, fosters collaboration and builds a network of contacts they can draw upon throughout their careers. 

Activities in the enrichment program focus on skill-building, understanding leadership, teamwork, social networking and community service through interdisciplinary, interactive and innovative approaches.

"The enrichment Program provided opportunities to interact with leaders who are practicing public health using diverse approaches like political action, media, advocacy and policymaking. I also learned how these approaches interface to create a cohesive strategy for change. Seeing professional leaders in action was an inspirational sight." - Anand Bang, MBBS, MPH '09
