Stanford Explore Summer Research Program
The Stanford Explore Lecture Series is an exploratory series covering the basic fundamentals and current research areas represented by the various research areas of the Stanford School of Medicine (Immunology, Neuroscience, Cardiovascular Medicine, Regenerative and Stem Cell Medicine, Cancer Biology, Bioengineering, Bioinformatics and Genetics). The lectures will be taught by Stanford Faculty, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows.
Although the main focus of the series is attending lectures similar to what students will be exposed to in college, students will also have opportunities to experience several hands-on demonstrations and simulation labs at Stanford. Furthermore, there will be opportunities to participate in lunch discussions with college, graduate school and medical school students to learn about the application process as well as to learn about what their experiences have been like. Students will be provided with a notebook, pen, bag and a course reader for optional background reading. No homework assignments will be given. The program dates are July 10-August 4, 2017 and the schedule is 9am-12pm daily (except on Fridays—the session will end at 1pm including lunch that is provided). We encourage you to sign up for all 4 weeks but you may also sign up for just 1, 2 or 3 weeks. The topics for each week can be found on the home page or registration page.
This program is geared for high school students (currently in 9th through 12th grade). We expect all students to have taken at least one year of high school biology. Students should also be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with a green card attending a high school in the U.S.
Students may sign up for one week at a time or for all 4 weeks of the lecture series. The fee for the series is $750 per week (2 weeks=$1,500, etc.). If you would like to register for all 4 weeks, the fee is $3000. On March 1st, 2016, the EXPLORE registration site will be open on our website, and we will have an online payment link available if you would like to pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) or you may also pay by check. Please be sure that you will be participating before you register online. PLEASE NOTE: If you decide to cancel your registration, the cancellation deadline is May 1st, 2017 and we cannot issue any refunds after this date.
FINANCIAL AID: Students who lack the means to pay course fees will be considered for partial or full scholarships. In order to be considered, please email the program for an application form (email@example.com). The aid will be based primarily on the household income (generally full scholarships are only considered for family income under $80,000). You will be notified of the decision within 1-2 weeks of the receipt of your application.

WISCI GIRLS STEAM CAMP
What is WiSci STEAM Camp?
The WiSci Camp aims to help close the gender gap through access to education, mentorship opportunities and leadership training.
What does STEAM stand for?
STEAM = Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics.
Why focus on STEM education for girls?
Over the past 15 years, the global community has made a lot of effort in inspiring and engaging girls and women in STEM education. Unfortunately, girls and women continue to face unique and significant barriers in accessing STEM education. According to a study conducted in 14 countries, the probability for female students of graduating with a Bachelor’s degree, Master’s degree and Doctor’s degree in science-related field are 18%, 8% and 2% respectively, while the percentages of male students are 37%, 18% and 6%. While women represent 40% of the global labor force, they are often paid lower salaries than men in similar jobs and are concentrated in lower skill, lower wage jobs and industries, with significant gaps in higher value added jobs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and math.
The Girls WiSci camp aligns with the United Nations’ 2015 Sustainable Development Goals to achieve gender equality and empower all girls and women. It also aligns with the Let Girls Learn initiative, which was launched by the White House to open the doors of education for girls around the world, the Equal Futures Partnership, which focuses on advancing women’s economic and political participation, recent free trade agreements, as well as bilateral and regional environmental cooperation efforts.
In order to achieve full and equal access to and participation in STEM, and to further achieve gender equality and girls’ empowerment, there need to be greater opportunities made available to girls and an increase in investments around girls’ STEM education.
That’s where the WiSci STEAM Camp comes in.
Join other girls from around the world for a unique educational opportunity and rich cross-cultural experience at the 2017 WiSci Girls STEAM Camp held in Malawi from July 30 – August 15, 2017. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, and Mathematics. The camp will include a STEAM curriculum led by experts in their fields, as well as leadership development activities and learning excursions within Malawi.
Applicants must be citizens and residents of Malawi, Liberia, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia or the United States of America, self-identify as female and be between the ages of 15-18 to apply. Applicants must have the expressed permission of a parent or guardian to apply for this opportunity. It is required that applicants have at least one year of secondary school still left to complete, and can commit to attend the full duration of camp. Applicants should also have regular access (at least once per week) to internet at a home, school, community center, internet café or other location.
WiSci strongly encourages all eligible candidates to apply without regards to race, ethnicity, religion, disability, income-level or level of STEAM experience.
2017 | WiSci STEAM Camp | Malawi
The 2017 WiSci Girls STEAM Camp will be held for approximately two and a half weeks in July in Malawi and will bring together high school girls from the African continent and the United States to work together to enhance their STEAM skills, craft their leadership potential, and build camaraderie and networks that will propel them to new opportunities.
The WiSci Girls STEAM Camp is a public-private partnership between the U.S. Department of State, Girl Up and other partners.
