Oregon State University is taking applications for 54 Oregon middle school students to attend the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Summer Science Camp this summer at OSU. Application deadline is Friday, April 16. The application includes a student essay and recommendations from science and math teachers.
The Oregon State University Department of 4-H Youth Development is pleased to be selected for a fourth year of funding in 2010 for the ExxonMobil Bernard Harris Foundation Summer Science Camp. The program provides full scholarships for Oregon middle school (entering grades 6- 8 ) students to attend a Summer Science Camp on the OSU campus in Corvallis, Oregon. Camp this year will be held August 2nd through the 13th.
Students are invited to apply for this two-week residential camp, to be held in August. Selection will be based on academic commitment (not necessarily performance) teacher recommendations and a student essay. We particularly hope to receive applications from students who belong to populations who are traditionally underserved and underrepresented in the fields of science and math and students from rural areas.
The full cost of the camp’s education program, field trips, food and lodging will be covered by a scholarship for those students selected to participate. More information is available online at http://oregon.4h.oregonstate.edu/summer-science-camp
