该奖学金项目是马萨诸塞州布里格姆总医院与社区合作促进经济机会和改善健康的整体承诺的一部分. Students are offered ongoing, 整个学年的全面支持,重点关注他们当前的学术成就以及未来的学术和职业目标. The program offers tutoring and college prep, coaching for things like interviews, guided tours of colleges and trade schools, professional mentors, hands-on learning at our hospitals, as well as internships. 

These internships, 提供给高中生全年和大学生在夏季, are a critical component of the Scholar’s experience. 每年,学生都有与他们的专业和职业兴趣相关的带薪实习机会. The Scholars have worked in over 60 different departments across the system, representing everything from patient care, to materials management, clinical administration, and even research labs. 有几名学生在实习期间曾担任研究报告的合著者. As part of the program, 学生也有机会与麻省总医院布里格姆的员工和领导团队一起参与网络和职业探索活动.

The Mass General Brigham continuum of youth programs supports over 2,000 students from middle school through college each year. Since 2013, 平均98%的学生高中毕业后进入大学. 这些学生来自波士顿地区20多所不同的学校,他们绝大多数代表着不同的社区. In 2020, 77% of students came from low-income families, 69% were female, 58% spoke a first language other than English, and 61% were first generation college students. 

In order to better connect with the community, Mass General Brigham works with local partners such as East Boston High School, Edward M. Kennedy Academy for Health Careers, Revere and Chelsea high schools, the Charlestown community, and Becoming A Man (BAM) to connect with interested student candidates.

This past year, in addition to helping students navigate SATs, college applications, and the rigor of student’s first college classes, 马萨诸塞州布里格姆将军学者项目也帮助学生在COVID - 19期间应对远程学习的不确定性. 奖学金项目为那些没有路线图的学生提供了关键的支持. Not only did the program offer access to laptops, 他们还继续提供每周节目,以了解学生的健康状况. 这些每周的会议为表达复杂的情绪和与心理健康专业人员建立联系提供了一个安全和支持的空间. 还有机会与社会工作者联系,帮助有住房或食品不安全问题的学生.

Atiyah Adams, a current Scholars student in the Class of 2023, first connected with Mass General Brigham in middle school. 随着时间的推移,她看到了我们连续的青年项目必须提供的深度和广度. 

“When I first joined the Mass General Hospital Science Fair program in 7th grade, 我记得我们每周五去医院的旅行是我一周中最重要的事情. 我们能够探索医院的不同部分,并从我们的导师那里学到很多. After completing that program, I was able to sign up for the Scholars program through Mass General Hospital,” she says.  “奖学金项目让我接触到了许多不同的职业道路和许多新的机会. 我遇到了很多了不起的人,他们教会了我很多关于太阳成领域的知识,以及如何才能达到他们的位置. 我甚至还和其他一些学者建立了友谊,他们也帮助我找到了机会.”
