Southern California Academy of Sciences Summer Research-- Application Due June 30th

I'm pleased to announce that the Southern California Academy of Sciences is running it's Research Training Program (RTP) for the 2022-2023 academic year.  We invite you to visit the SCAS website to learn more about this program which is intended for highly motivated high school students who are considering careers in science.  We would particularly like to encourage those students from groups that are historically under-represented in the sciences.  The application is on the website:


This program pairs high school students with research mentors around the Southern California area to carry out research projects designed by the students and their mentors.  The work culminates in a research paper and a presentation at the SCAS annual meeting alongside professional researchers and college students at all levels.  It is an incredible opportunity for your curious science-minded students, particularly if they are looking for ways to distinguish themselves at the high school level.  Also, the top student presenters are chosen to represent SCAS at the national meeting of the American Junior Academy of Sciences, which is held concurrently with the American Association for the Advancement of Sciences annual meeting, the largest science meeting in the world. At the AJAS meeting, students interact with other young scientists from around the country and share their research experience in oral and poster presentations.


I would be most grateful if you would forward this to your high school teachers, counselors, administrators and anyone else in your Department/District who works with science-minded students.  Also, if you have a student in mind for the program, we hope you will encourage them to apply.  If you have any specific questions, please feel free to contact me directly.
