Summer Research Program for Teachers/CERTS

June 16 - August 8, 2014

Stanford’s Summer Research Program for Teachers (SRPT) offers eight-week research fellowships for teachers of middle school and high school who teach in the San Francisco Bay Area. Teachers work in a Stanford lab four days a week, and meet once a week as a group for science and engineering lectures by Stanford faculty, lab tours, and seminars on teaching. Participants earn a stipend of $7,200 for the summer and an additional $1,000 grant after developing and testing new lessons with their students.

Beginning in summer 2013, a subset of these teachers will be funded by the National Science Foundation in a complementary program called Computing and Engineering Research Experiences for Teachers (CERTS). The expectations and activities for CERTS and SRPT are identical.
