Dear high school students, parents and teachers,

Thank you for your interest in the Indianapolis Project STEM Summer Research Internship Program at IUPUI. The program is blessed every year to serve outstanding students in the greater Indianapolis area. When possible, we also try to accommodate students from more distant rural Indiana communities. 

In March, we will hold a meeting for all interested students who complete the General Information section 1 of the application. Information will be sent to students and parents at the email provided. 


All applicants must have completed 2 semesters of chemistry before the program begins and be:

Mature Sophomores – going into Junior Year
Juniors – going into Senior year
Seniors - going into college as some laboratories require students to be 18.

Although very exceptional, we have accepted students in the summer after grade 9 who have completed 2 semesters of high school chemistry.

Application deadline is April 1. 

On May 8 students will be notified of their acceptance status. However, if other programs need a commitment from you sooner, you may request a one-time update by writing .

The 2017 program starts on Tuesday May 30 and finishes on July 21 for most students and July 28 for selected students who finish the school year in June.
