Inspiring Future Scientists through Shadowing (IFSS)


Inspiring Future Scientists Through Shadowing (IFSS) is a program hosted each summer by the chemistry department at Stanford University. This program gives rising juniors and seniors in high school an opportunity to experience cutting edge chemical research while shadowing a graduate student mentor as they work in the laboratory. We encourage applications from US citizens and permanent residents over the age of 16 interested in careers in science - particularly from women and under-represented minorities. Preference will be given to local students, as no on-campus housing is available for this program. Participants must arrange for their own transportation to/from the Stanford Campus. There is no cost to participate.
