Description:
SIP is a summer-long (10 week) research internship program for high school students in STEM fields. UCSC faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers provide one-on-one mentoring of these high-school interns. The research projects are REAL in that they are NOT made up just for the high-school students; instead the high-school students are inserted into existing research projects at UCSC.

A limited number of partial and full need-based scholarships are available. Scholarship requests will be considered after admission offers have been made. We encourage interested students to apply regardless of their financial situation; every effort will be made to provide financial assistance.
