Cancer Research Opportunities for Youth (CROY)
CROY is an initiative from Yale Cancer Center meant to provide young people from local communities with hands-on experience, mentoring, and collaboration within the cancer research pipeline. To qualify for this program, you must identify with a group that is underrepresented in cancer research and willing to commit to working two summers in the cancer center. In general, this refers to individuals who are Hispanic/Latino, Black or African American. However, other students may also qualify for this program.
