Junction, a non-residential summer STEM program for high-school students offered by MIT’s Educational Studies Program (ESP), runs on Sundays June 25 and July 16 to August 20 for selected high-school students who will:
- Propose, design and carry out an independent study project of their choosing, working closely with an undergraduate mentor in that field,
- Participate in hands-on, college-level afternoon seminars in a variety of fields, and
- Be part of a tight community of students and mentors.
High-school students should read apply online by April 24 by responding to essay questions and submitting a proposal for an independent-study project with one of the mentors. Accepted students will be notified by mid-May and will communicate with mentors weekly until just before the program to refine proposals and begin research, in preparation for their two weeks together. The cost is $600, and need-based financial aid is available. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: If you have already applied but did so before your contact information was requested on the application form, please email email@example.com with the exact name of your proposed project so that your contact information may be included!
