High School

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.
