UTRGV High Scholars Summer Program

The College of Sciences at UTRGV has established an exciting new program to engage high school students from the Rio Grande Valley in research projects being conducted by the university faculty at UTRGV’s Brownsville and Edinburg campuses. The goal of this 10-week summer research program is to promote student interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) by engaging students in “real time” laboratory or field research projects. Students will spend 25 hours per week, with a flexible schedule agreeable to the student and their mentor(s), in state-of the-art laboratory and field research facilities at UTRGV. Each student will conduct original scientific research under the guidance of a faculty mentor and possibly also a post-doctoral researcher or a graduate student acting as co-mentor.
