Unique opportunity for Appalachian students and teachers


The Appalachian Regional Commission encourages all middle and high school students interested in math, science and technology to apply for the commission’s 2019 Appalachian Regional Commission/Oak Ridge National Laboratory Summer STEM Program. The free program provides Ohio Appalachian students the opportunity to work in teams with scientists from Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
The institute will take place from July 6-19 for high school students and teachers and July 13-19 for middle school students. Both sessions take place at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee.

Students will be chaperoned 24 hours a day, and the academy will cover all major expenses, including meals, lodging and transportation. High school teachers are eligible to participate and can receive stipends for attending. See the website for qualifications.
Additional program information and applications are available here. Submit applications to the Governor’s Office of Appalachia on or before March 15.
