The High School Internship Program

High school students spend at least 6-8 weeks (15-30 hours each week) in the summer working in different science laboratories. The students work on research projects and are supervised directly by graduate students, post docs or other researchers. This program enables graduate students to serve as mentors, prepares high schools students for college and serves to strengthen the partnership between UCSC and local high schools. The application period is between February and March each year.
