The Science Internship Program provides motivated, advanced students with a unique opportunity to work and learn at a premier research institution.
SIP is a summer-long (10 week) research internship program for high school students in STEM fields. UCSC faculty, graduate students, and post-doctoral researchers provide one-on-one mentoring of these high-school interns. The research projects are real in that they are not made up just for the high-school students; instead students are inserted into existing research projects here at UCSC.

Recommendations from an Expert
If you are a student with an interest in any STEM subject and you want to work with professors, postdocs, and Ph.D. students in doing research for a real-life project, this could be the program for you. Research projects through the University of California Santa Cruz Science Internship program vary, so if you aren’t necessarily interested in biology, but you have a passion for anthropology, there are projects for those topics.
