Project SEED is the American Chemical Society’s (ACS) social action program that places economically disadvantaged high school students in academic, industrial, and government research laboratories for eight-to-ten weeks during the summer. The program is designed to help high school students to expand their career outlook and provide opportunities for students who historically lack exposure to scientific careers.
Project SEED offers high school students two exciting research opportunities.
- The Summer I program will provide first time participants (rising juniors and seniors) a fellowship award of $1,750.
- A second year program, Summer II, provides Project SEED Summer I students with an additional summer of scientific research. These students will receive a fellowship award of $2,000. Additionally, Summer II students will be eligible for travel grant of $100 to present their research at an ACS or other scientific meeting.
Each student conducts scientific research in chemistry or related field under the direct supervision of a scientist/mentor. The students must be economically disadvantaged and must be enrolled in high school or be recent high school graduates.
If you or your organization is interested in mentoring a potential future scientist, please contact the St. Louis section ACS Project SEED coordinator for more information and application materials.
