High School

Our Maine Research Internships for Teachers and Students (MERITS) Program provides summer (seven weeks) research opportunities to Maine high school juniors in host institutions across the state.  Students who are interested in STEM fields and would like to experience “real-time” applications of STEM in a research-focused work world conducting research and technology development should apply.

Students must be U.S citizens to apply to this program.
