Raising Interest in Science and Engineering (RISE) Summer Internship Program

The RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) Summer Internship Program for High School Students is sponsored by Stanford University. It’s an intensive 7‐week summer program for students interested in science, engineering, math, and computer science. Students spend 30 hours a week on the Stanford campus, working in an active research lab under the guidance of a mentor from the lab (typically a graduate student), and attending weekly group sessions that include field trips, presentations, hands‐on science activities, and lab tours.

Most students are nominated to the program by their high school teacher.   High school students who are eligible to apply can request application instructions here.

The 2018 program will run from June 20th thru August 8th.
