Research Experience for High School Students

The CRISP High School (HS) Research Fellowship provides participants with the opportunity to conduct team-based interdisciplinary materials research. Participating students conduct a four-week research project as members of a research team including university faculty, undergraduate and graduate students. Students will be exposed to professional development opportunities through weekly meetings and faculty seminars. The program begins in late June/early July just after the school year ends.

  • The selection of HS participants is based on a personal statement, academic transcript, resume and one letter of recommendation. Selection is based on the candidate’s motivation, promise for success, and the potential for CRISP to positively impact the student’s abilities and interest in obtaining a college graduate degree in an engineering or science field; we especially target student’s from urban school districts. Typically, 2-3 students are selected.
