The Secondary Student Training Program connects high-achieving high school students with inspirational faculty mentors from the University of Iowa Colleges of Dentistry, Engineering, Liberal Arts and Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health. Through this program, students gain first-hand experience with authentic STEM research and make connections with STEM professionals.
If you are currently (academic year 2014–2015) in grade 10 or 11, you may apply for the Secondary Student Training Program. This five-week residential summer research program will place you on the University of Iowa campus from Sunday, June 21– Friday, July 24. During your stay in Iowa City, you will spend approximately 40 hours per week researching in a field of interest to you. You will even have a life outside of the lab with evenings filled with social and academic activities.
Applications are due February 27, 2015, but now is a great time to start collecting all of the necessary information for a great application! Check out the Belin-Blank Center’s Summer Programs website when the application process opens on November 1, 2014, and read the Secondary Student Training Program blog to learn more about if this program is for you.
