2020 Research Science Institute at MIT Canceled

McLean, VA (March 20, 2020) – In light of COVID-19, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) has canceled summer programs for the health and safety of students and staff. The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) cannot sponsor the 2020 Research Science Institute (RSI), which was originally planned for June 21- August 1 on the MIT campus in Cambridge, Massachusetts. CEE is in communication with the RSI students selected to attend the program.

“It is a tremendous disappointment that no RSI will take place this summer. However, online programming and other exciting activities are in planning for the students,” said Joann P. DiGennaro, CEE President.

For the past 36 years, RSI has provided students with the opportunity to conduct original, cutting-edge research in state-of-the-art university laboratories, hospitals and corporate research facilities in Boston and Cambridge, MA. The heart of RSI is the five-week research internship where students conduct individual projects under the tutelage of mentors who are experienced scientists and researchers. RSI is cost-free for students to attend. They reside on campus at MIT during the program.
