New U of M Summer Program Will Give High School Students an Up-close Look at Science, Math, and Computer Majors

For release: April 19, 2012
For press information, contact Curt Guenther, 901/678-2843

A new program this summer at the University of Memphis will offer research experience to high school students who are interested in pursuing a major in physics, chemistry, math, computer sciences, or any other department in the U of M’s College of Arts and Sciences.  “MemphisCRESH” (College Research Experience for Students from High School) will run from June 11 through July 28. 

Participants will work alongside faculty members and University students from their chosen departments in labs on campus before their junior or senior year in high school. "Students will be able to gain firsthand experience in cutting-edge research and perhaps discover what they want to major in once they enter college," said Dr. Firouzeh Sabri, director of CRESH. "They will have the opportunity to experience life as a scientist beyond a lecture hall setting."

Sabri said the program is highly competitive, with a limited number of spots. The cost is $1,500 per student, but Sabri said several full or partial scholarships are available for participants, based on merit and financial need.  She encouraged all students who are interested to apply, regardless of their financial status.  Applications will be taken through the middle of May.

Details are available online at or from Dr. Sabri at 901-678-2126 or
