JSHS is designed to challenge and engage students (Grades 9-12) in science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for hands-on workshops, panel discussions, career exploration, research lab visits and networking are planned.
Students must participate in their Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposium, and be selected to advance to the National Symposium. Please request application materials, or to find out how your school may participate, please contact the director of the regional symposium in your area.
No cost to submit original research, though there may be costs associated with conducting research.
Individual High School Students
- Eight $12,000 undergraduate, tuition scholarships, awarded to each of the 1st place finalists in the National research paper competition
- Eight $8,000 undergraduate, tuition scholarships, awarded to each of the 2nd place finalists in the National research paper competition
- Eight $4,000 undergraduate, tuition scholarships, awarded to each of the 3rd place finalists in the National research paper competition
Outcome of the Activity:
Attain a sense of achievement and self-confidence resulting from interaction with students from other schools and regions and with professional researchers and educators. To quote a former JSHS alumni, [At JSHS] "I learned a tremendous amount of science, got to meet other high school students who shared my interests in science, and learned that I could succeed at any program that I chose to pursue."
