|High School Research Academy|
The Summer High School Research Academy allows high school participants to join researchers in the College of Natural Sciences where they will become members of a research team for between 4 to 8 weeks. The participants will see how research works by being directly involved in research projects on the UT-Austin campus. They will learn advanced techniques and interact with students and faculty at UT. By being involved in research, the students will experience the joy of discovery that is central to being a scientist. This is a unique opportunity that will give high school students a real taste of life as a researcher. For Summer 2013 we have two programs available for high school students entering their junior or senior year in the 2013-14 academic year.
Starting June 10, 2013
The registration fee for the Summer Research Academy is $150, independent of the number of weeks of participation. The supply and instruction fee is $100 per week with a minimum of four weeks. There will also be a one-time fee of $10 for a student identification card. Payment of fees are not required until students have been accepted into the program.
