The ORIP program is targeted to provide research experiences for high school students and undergraduates. Students must be 18 years of age by May 1st to participate. The goal of this program is to expand research opportunities to area students and to enhance their interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics by inculcating critical thinking skills through rigorous laboratory and field-based research experiences, seminars, group discussions, and symposia. The program opens the doors of our state-of-the-art laboratories to young students in the community to explore various scientific career paths.
All selected students will receive stipends and certificates indicating their participation in the program. The students will also build a network of peers, scientists, and experiences that will set them apart from others for college applications and future career opportunities.
