In its inaugural year, the Indiana University Project STEM program aims to offer university-level research experience to high school students interested in science and engineering. In this program, the student is teamed with a faculty mentor and a graduate researcher in order to make a true scientific impact during his/her internship.  While the Project STEM programs originally were Chemistry focused, the IU team of mentors is more focused on neuroscience, psychological and cognitive sciences.   Students are also given safety training, along with college and career tips and counseling.

High School students may apply to the program by clicking the Application Tab up top or click here.   We look forward to your applications and bringing young scientists to campus this June!
