Sorry this program is closed for the summer of 2017. Please visit us in the fall when we announce our 2018 program!
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 JANUARY 31, 2017
Students must be U.S citizens and residents of Maine to apply to this program.
We thank our host participants for many years of continued support of our program! Below is a list of some host organizations who have participated in our program since 2008, when we took the program under our wing!
