The North Carolina Section Project SEED program is a statewide, year-round science enrichment program. The goals of the program are to financially support and encourage talented, disadvantaged North Carolina high school students to pursue terminal graduate and professional school degrees in chemistry, or chemistry related science disciplines through a scientific research internship experience. Each student is involved in a research project in chemistry and/or chemistry-related sciences under the guidance and supervision of an experienced scientist (principal investigator) at Duke University, North Carolina State University, and UNC-Chapel Hill.
The program consist of a summer science research internship (from June 17, 2012 to August 3, 2012), both residential and commuter. Only rising juniors (currently 10th graders) and rising seniors (currently 11th graders)that have completed Chemistry, or are taking Chemistry, will be eligible. Students that reside outside of the Research Triangle Area will reside at Duke University. Students that reside in Wake, Durham, and Orange counties will be commuters.
Each student receives an educational award (stipend) to offset the loss of summer employment.
SEED I (first-year students) receive $2500!
SEED II (second-year students) receive $3000!
SEED students will also receive a
Princeton Review SAT Prep Course!
Activities during the year include SEED Academy and participation in local, state, and national science competitions and scientific conferences.
