2017 UC Santa Cruz Science Internship Program

The Science Internship Program provides motivated, advanced students with a unique opportunity to work and learn at a premier research institution. 

 

SIP is a summer-long (10 week) research internship program for high-school students in STEM fields. UCSC faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral 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 students are inserted into existing research projects here at UCSC.

 

Students be at least 14 years of age on the program start date of June 12 (at least 16 years of age for certain research project placements) and currently enrolled in high school. While many SIP interns are “rising seniors” (in the summer between junior and senior year), this is not a requirement. Students who expect to have graduated high school by this summer are generally ineligible. Most students accepted into SIP will be from Bay Area high schools. Out-of-area students will generally fall into one or more of the following three categories: (1) those who use weekday-housing and have a clear plan for local weekend housing, (2) those who use full-week housing when available (in both cases, the students will have to overcome the logistical challenges associated with a minor’s participation in a remote summer program), and (3) those placed into remotely-mentored projects (there is a limited number of such projects available).

 

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.

 

 

The 2017 UC Santa Cruz Science Internship Program application portal is open March 10-27. Application deadline is March 27, 2017.
