Project SEED


Summer Research Internship Program for Economically Disadvantaged High School Students

The ACS Project SEED summer research program opens new doors for economically disadvantaged students to experience what it’s like to be a chemist. Students entering their junior or senior year in high school are given a rare chance to work alongside scientist-mentors on research projects in industrial, academic, and federal laboratories, discovering new career paths as they approach critical turning points in their lives. 

Congratulations to our 2017 Project SEED participants at the University of South Carolina, under the leadership of Dr. Chuanbing Tang.
