Special Comments: Program Description:

The Science Internship Program (SIP) provides motivated, advanced students with a unique opportunity to work and learn at a premier research institution.

SIP is a summer-long (10 week) research internship program for high school students in STEM fields. UCSC faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers provide one-on-one mentoring to these high school interns. The research projects are real in that they are not made up just for the high school students; instead, students are inserted into existing research projects here at UCSC.

SIP’s mission is to facilitate a life-altering experience for high school students, by placing them as summer interns in research groups/labs, where they work as members of a real scientific research team.

Through SIP summer internships, students will grasp the relationships among research tasks, research projects, and broader research programs—not abstractly, but through practical experience working with research mentors and other team members engaged in research project design, the application of accepted methods and best practices, data collection and analysis, and effective communication of research findings.

Through the program’s strong commitment to mentorship (not just work experience), SIP provides students with a front row seat for witnessing scientific research passion “in action” as it unfolds, in and through the activity of a research team. Participating in the ongoing traverse along the circuit from basic questions to project design, data collection, and analysis, the passion for research becomes something shared.

The SIP RAs work with and are responsible for high school student interns who are way from their home campuses. The RAs are responsible for creating a welcoming, inclusive, fun community for the interns who are participating in the program.

•Applicants with undergraduate status are preferred.

•Scheduling conflicts due to participation in summer school, other jobs, or vacation may not be accommodated; Must be available to work after 2:00pm on weekday evenings and half-days on weekends

•Work shifts will be approximately 25-30 hours per week.

•Must live in residence halls.
