Summer Research Science Institute at MIT: Applications Due Jan. 16

The Research Science Institute hosts 80 accomplished high-school students in a rigorous summer STEM research program at MIT, June 24-August 4, combining on-campus coursework in scientific theory and off-campus work in STEM research.  Students first participate in a week of intensive STEM classes, then conduct five-week individual research projects with mentors, and finally prepare written and oral presentations of their results. The program is designed for students entering senior year in the fall, but exceptions for younger students will be considered. Except for a $65 application fee (which may be waived upon request), the program is free to students.  Applications are due January 12.  For more information, email RSI.
