Young Scholars Program (YSP)
The Center for Sensorimotor Neural Engineering (CSNE) at the University of Washington will sponsor a 10-week Young Scholars Program on the university's Seattle campus during the summer of 2013 (June 24 - August 30). High school students will be involved in ongoing research projects with researchers, and will have the opportunity to take part in workshop training sessions in ethics, communication skills, and scientific presentation skills designed to provide the student scientist with a solid foundation for future study.
The application deadline for the summer 2013 program was February 1, 2013.
- Be a high school student.
- Be a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of the U.S. (or its possessions).
- Devote 40 hours per week to the program. This is considered a full time commitment. You may not enroll in classes or hold other jobs during the day. Participants will be paid a stipend and will not receive academic credit for the research experience.
- Attend the weekly communication classes, journal club meetings, and all other required lectures, seminars, focus groups, and workshops.
- Participate in summer research symposiums at the end of the program.
- Provide their own housing and transportation to the University of Washington.
What participants will receive:
- An opportunity to be involved in an interdisciplinary research project with a team of researchers working together to solve a common problem.
- Lectures about ethics, communications skills, laboratory safety, and other relevant topics.
- Experience preparing and presenting research results to the scientific community.
- A stipend of $5,000 for the 10 week program.
