Science & Engineering Apprenticeship Summer Program (George Washington University)

George Washington University is accepting applications for their summer Science & Engineering Apprenticeship program. Applications are due by February 27, 2009.

This program places academically talented high school students (at least 16 yrs old, sophomores or juniors) with interest in science & math in Department of Defense laboratories for an 8-wk period over the summer. This is an invaluable experience in the world of scientific research, with hands-on exposure to scientific & engineering practices not available in the high school environment. It is an apprenticeship that pays up to $2,000. Each student is assigned a scientist or engineer as their mentor.

We encourage BDPA Foundation blog readers to apply online. Students must submit their transcript (minimum GPA 3.0) and teacher recommendation to the program director for consideration and daily transportation is the student's responsibility. The program runs from June 22 - August 14, 2009.

Please share this information with all SITES students and HSCC alumni!
