Temple University’s College of Science and Technology will be offering a paid summer research program for high school juniors interested in STEM in the Philadelphia region. Applications are currently open until Friday, March 4, 2022. We appreciate your help in advertising this program to your students – attached is a PDF  that can be used as a flyer, but the following has more information as well.

The Science Preparatory Research Opportunities for Underrepresented Teens (SPROUT) aims to provide students with low socioeconomic status early exposure to graduate-level research education, improve the research enterprise through increased diversity, and prepare and recruit passionate students to Temple University’s College of Science and Technology. Students will receive hands-on research training, mentorship from an established investigator, participation in skill-building workshops, and present research at a symposium in addition to a stipend of $1,000.00. Transportation will also be provided.

We are currently looking for high school juniors interested in pursuing an undergraduate degree in a STEM field. Underrepresented minority and first-generation students are strongly encouraged to apply.
