High school seniors are being sought to attend the 2014 National Youth Science Camp (NYSC). The awardees will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds. The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation; overnight camping trips into the Monogahela National Forest; and a visit to Washington D.C. The selected delegates should demonstrate academic achievement in science as well as showing potential for thoughtful scientific leadership.
The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to participants so that financial status is not a factor in applying for or attending the camp. Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation support delegate participation in this "once in a lifetime" experience. Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air fare on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge.
Delegates will arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Friday, June 27, 2014 and depart on Sunday, July 20, 2014 to return home. The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. Application forms can be accessed from the NYSC website at the following link: http://apply.nysc.org. Applications must be submitted online no later than Saturday, March 1, 2014.
