Applications for summer internship programs due March 1
Area high school science teachers and juniors and seniors who are interested in science are invited to apply for the 2002 Pierce Chemical Company/University of Illinois College of Medicine at Rockford Summer Science Internship Program.
The paid internship program motivates high school students to consider careers in science by providing them with opportunities to interact closely with professionals in either the academic or industrial research environment.
In addition to gaining valuable laboratory experience at Pierce or the College of Medicine, high school teachers who participate in the program receive a stipend, 10 graduate credit hours from the University of Illinois at Chicago and other benefits for themselves as well as their schools.
Applications for the program are due to the College of Medicine by March 1. For more information or for an application, contact Kim Hines at Pierce Chemical, (815) 968-0747, ext. 315, or Janet Stull-Snow at the College of Medicine, (815) 395-5680.
