Our Maine Research Internships for Teachers and Students (MERITS) Program provides summer (six 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.
Applications are due DECEMBER 5, 2014
NOTE: Beginning in 2015, the program duration is now six weeks
Students must be U.S citizens to apply to this program.
We thank our host participants for many years of continued support of our program! Below is a list of host organizations who have participated in our program since 2008, when we took the program under our wing!
