The Lloyd Sherman Scholars

Overview of Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE)


The Lloyd Sherman Scholars program is a gender-based biomedical science enrichment program that aims to foster the development of a scientist identity among a cohort of Black and Latino male students attending the Manhattan Center for Science and Mathematics. This program is administered by the Center for Excellence in Youth Education (CEYE), which is housed at the Center for Multicultural and Community Affairs (CMCA) and takes place at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS).

The Program involves three components, beginning the summer before junior year of high school, and concluding at the end of the summer prior to senior year. These components are structured around inquiry-based learning with lab-skill development and application in a mentored research experience.
