Highlight: Are you looking for a challenge for science? Or is the normal school curriculum feeling a bit underwhelming? Well, the Summer Science Program is perfect for students that are interested and motivated in stepping it up a bit in STEM. In this science program, students immerse themselves in a fascinating research project in Astrophysics or Biochemistry, and would be collaborating with likeminded teammates rather than competing with them. By the end of this intensive science program, students are shocked by their progress and by how much they have learned in this short amount of time. This science program is hosted on university campuses like Purdue and New Mexico Tech that are recognized for their STEM facilities and research! At this science program, you’ll take college-style lectures from high-profile people from places like NASA, Google, and UC Berkeley. You’ll also do hands-on labs and practice sets designed to help further your knowledge and skillsets. It is free to apply, and the application process itself is need-blind, meaning that they accept people independent of their financial circumstances. Unfortunately, this science program is neither free nor especially low cost. However, financial need is considered after candidates are admitted and can be quite generous… covering fairly broad range of financial circumstances. So don’t miss out on your chance to attend this intense and jam-packed learning experience! Head to the Summer Science Program website to learn more and apply today !
Financial aid for this science program is available…which actually even covers airfare up to $500/student.
