Opportunities to mentor high school students in STEM fields

The Young Researchers Program is a summer research program for high school students. Most of the high school students who participate are local, high achieving and from underserved communities. The program is looking for graduate students who will spend ~15 hours/week mentoring a high school student in an independent research project from June 22-Aug 5. There will be some modest support for graduate students. Two partial summer stipends are also available for qualifying graduate student mentors. There will also be some training opportunities and a chance for the mentor and mentee to attend the SACNAS conference this October in Long Beach.

Interested students are encouraged to contact:
