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 7-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
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 2013. 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
