The RISE (Raising Interest in Science and Engineering) Summer Internship Program for HS Students is sponsored by the Office of Science Outreach. It’s an intensive 7-week summer program for local Bay Area students interested in science, engineering, math, computer science, or psychology. Students spend 30 hours a week on the Stanford campus, working in an active research lab under the guidance of a mentor from the lab (typically a graduate student), and attending weekly group sessions that include field trips, presentations, hands-on science activities, and lab tours.
RISE is designed for bright low income students and those who will be the first in their families to attend college. We give priority to groups historically under-represented in science and engineering. Most applicants are nominated by their science teacher. View the Eligibility Criteria on this page to see if you qualify to apply.
RISE offers participants:
- An intense and rewarding research experience
- Weekly community enrichment activities
- A stipend of $2,500
- Graduate student or post-doctoral mentor
- A network of like-minded high school students who love science and engineering
