Summer High-school Internships in Research Experiences (SHIRE)

About the Summer High-school Internships in Research Experiences

In Summer 2024, the Interdisciplinary Science and Research Program is excited to launch the inaugural Summer High-school Internships in Research Experiences (SHIRE) program in partnership with the Ayin Project and the Nashville POWER Youth Summer Employment Initiative. This unique, paid internship offers rising juniors and seniors within the ISR programs the opportunity to engage in invaluable hands-on research, skill development, and communication activities. Students will work alongside scientists from Vanderbilt’s Collaborative for STEM Education and Outreach and educators from their home ISR schools. In the Summer of 2024, rising juniors will delve into Cancer Biology and Engineering Principles, exploring fields such as cell culturing and mechanical engineering projects, respectively. Rising seniors will focus on Water Assessment for the Ayin Project and develop individual research projects to continue during the fall semester at their home high schools. This internship not only provides a stipend but also offers the chance to work on personalized projects and gain real-world research experience while working with leading experts in the field.
