The Columbia University Science Honors Program (SHP) is a highly selective program for students who have a strong interest in science and mathematics. Classes are held at Columbia from 10:00 AM to 12:30 PM on Saturdays throughout the academic year. Applicants for the 2019-2020 school year must now be in the eleventh, tenth, or ninth grade and must apply online. The program is available only to students who attend high schools in New York, New Jersey, or Connecticut and who live within a 75-mile radius of the Columbia campus.
The Geosciences Program takes place over six (6) weeks in the summer at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore (UMES) in Princess Anne, MD.
The Institute of Arctic Studies at Dartmouth College offers two exciting polar science programs currently available to high school students: the Joint Science Education Project (JSEP) to Greenland and the Joint Antarctic School Expedition (JASE) to Antarctica. JSEP and JASE are supported by the National Science Foundation grant to Dartmouth College. Travel, lodging and meals are provided at no cost to selected students.
Application Deadline: 1/31/2019
Travel, accommodations, and meals are provided at no cost to participants. Students must have or be able to get a passport and provide regular clothing and a sturdy pair of hiking boots. Extreme Cold Weather Gear for use at Summit in Greenland and on King George Island is issued in the field by the program.
The application for both programs is open during the winter (~December through January) before each JSEP (following summer) and JASE (following winter) expedition. We will not make any exceptions for students who are not in 10th (JASE only) or 11th (JSEP and JASE) grade at the time of application.
Climate change is the biggest issue of your lifetime. Your whole life will be lived as the impacts of global climate change are taking place. Our Contest is a call for young artists, thinkers, and activists who are concerned about the future of our human and natural communities to use their creative voices to explore, express, and advocate for issues related to climate change and our oceans.
AgDiscovery is a summer outreach program designed to help teenagers explore careers in plant and animal science, wildlife management, agribusiness, and much more! The program allows students to live on a college campus and learn about agriculture from university professors, scientists, and administrative professionals who work for the U.S. Government in a variety of fields.
This 2- to 4-week summer outreach program for 2019 targets middle and high school students who are interested in learning more about plants, animals, and agribusiness. Students chosen to participate in AgDiscovery will gain experience through hands-on labs, workshops, and field trips. Students will also participate in character- and team-building activities and a variety of other events.
There is no cost to attend the AgDiscovery 2019 summer program. Tuition, room and board, lab supplies, meals, and activity fees will be covered by APHIS.

List of Opportunities for HS Students in Outdoor/Ecological Field Sciences
The Simons Summer Research Program gives academically talented, motivated high school students the opportunity to engage in hands-on research in science, math or engineering at Stony Brook University. Simons Fellows work with distinguished faculty mentors, learn laboratory techniques and tools, become part of active research teams, and experience life at a research university.
The Human Oncology and Pathogenesis Program (HOPP) Summer Student Program is designed for high school students who are interested in pursuing careers in the biomedical sciences.
10 week Summer Internship Program for Undergrads in Marine/Estuarine Science
The Internship Program at the Patuxent Environmental & Aquatic Research Laboratory (PEARL) offers undergraduate and recently graduated students unique hands-on experiences in an environmental research setting. The student will gain knowledge on field and laboratory research and project designs. During the entire course of the internship, each student will work exclusively under the guidance and supervision of a PEARL faculty research scientist. A PEARL intern will be involved in meaningful research during the internship and will present the findings at a PEARL seminar/minisymposium series at the end of the summer.
We are very excited to announce that the theme for the 2017 Science without Borders® Challenge is “Reef SuperSpecies.” Students are encouraged to modify an existing species or create a new species that has found a way to adapt to a deadly threat facing coral reefs, and send in their illustration of this creature.
The Science without Borders® Challenge was created to get students and teachers interested in ocean conservation through various forms of art. This annual contest inspires students to be creative while learning about important ocean conservation issues. The Science without Borders® Challenge is open to primary and secondary school students 11-19 years old, with scholarships of up to $500 awarded to the winning entries. The deadline for entry into this year’s Science without Borders® Challenge is Monday, April 24, 2017 at 11:59 pm.

Science Communication Fellowship (Formal and Informal Educators:
The IMMS Education Internship Program is designed as a way for students interested in a career in science education to gain valuable hands-on experience in a real-world informal educational setting.
Interns will participate in our daily public programs that educate our visitors about marine mammals and sea turtles, as well as issues affecting their habitats. As an intern you will also narrate our dolphin presentation. Summer interns spend at least one week in our summer camp program working as an aide to a certified teacher.
Interns will further their knowledge by working in other IMMS departments, including Research, Animal Care & Training, and Veterinary/Stranding. Our goal is to give Interns a well-rounded experience in a variety of areas while providing expert training and practical involvement in marine science education.
This is an unpaid position and all interns are responsible for their own housing and transportation. Positions are limited and IMMS reserves the right to end an internship at any time.
