Applications Sought for Project SEED Internships at Idaho State University Department of Chemistry
January 7, 2022
This summer, local high school students can get hands-on and paid experience thanks to the American Chemical Society and Idaho State University’s Chemistry Department.
Starting in February, ACS will be accepting applications for the group’s Project SEED (Summer Experiences for the Economically Disadvantaged) internship program at Idaho State University. Project SEED’s mission is “to ensure that students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds have opportunities to experience the challenges and rewards of chemically-related sciences.”
“The interns will gain real-world research experience working with ISU professors and researchers,” said Dr. Joshua Pak, Chemistry Department Chair. “We encourage all high school students who have taken or are taking a high school chemistry class and meet the eligibility requirements to apply.”
The internship lasts eight weeks, from June to July. Interns will be paid $3,200.
