MemphisCRESH is a program designed to provide rising high school juniors and seniors firsthand experience of life as a scientist beyond the lecture hall setting, at the University of Memphis. If you have a naturally curious mind and wonder what a chemist, physicist, mathematician, computer scientist, or psychologist does with their knowledge beyond teaching then MemphisCRESH may be for you.
MemphisCRESH is a 6-week, intensive, summer, day program that will allow you to work on a particular research project under the mentorship and supervision of a university faculty and in conjunction with undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdoctoral fellows.
This highly selective program will accept 8-10 students, and applications will be accepted until the program is full. Successful applicants will have completed algebra and a laboratory science course by June 2015. Students who successfully complete this program and subsequently enroll at UoM for their undergraduate studies will be automatically admitted into the Helen Hardin Honors program and will have the opportunity to attend a national undergraduate conference(s) to present their research findings.
The program fee will cover lunch for the entire period of the program, printing of the student’s research poster, lab materials, program T-shirt and participation in the professional lecture series. At the end of the program the students will have the opportunity to present their work to peers, friends and family and compete for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place awards. All students will receive a certificate of participation. Full and partial scholarships are available.
