Program dates: Sunday, May 29 - Friday, July 29, 2016
The STARS (Science, Technology and Research Scholars) Program provides students with an integrated experience that includes mentorship, academic support and engagement in original research. STARS identifies and supports students from groups that are underrepresented in the scientific and technological disciplines, and students who come from disadvantaged circumstances, in any of Yale’s natural sciences and engineering majors. Applications are accepted in the spring semester from students who, at the time, are freshmen or sophomores.
During the summer program students conduct full-time research with a faculty mentor in a Yale science laboratory, enroll in SCIE 101, Scientific Research: Process and Presentation, participate in study sessions and journal clubs, and conduct a formal presentation of their summer research. All participants are required to maintain on-campus residency throughout the duration of the program.
Application deadline is Friday, February 12, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
Along with this application, all students are asked to submit a transcript, including the courses you will likely be taking in Spring. Unofficial transcripts will be accepted. Please email as an attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org.
