Teen Science Scholars
THE TEEN SCIENCE SCHOLAR APPLICATION PROCESS IS CLOSED. THE 2024 APPLICATION WILL OPEN IN JANUARY 2024
Teen Science Scholars complete hands-on summer internships with Science Division staff at the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Teen interns strengthen their investigative and communication skills, develop a peer network of students from across the state of Colorado, and share their work and experiences during a Showcase event at the end of the summer. To be eligible, applicants must be entering their junior or senior year of high school in the fall of 2024, be interested in learning more about a science-related career and be available for the duration of the internship (early June through the end of July). Teens from groups that have been historically marginalized from the sciences and individuals who will be the first generation in their family to complete a four-year college degree are strongly encouraged to apply
Teen Science Scholars receive a monthly stipend, bus passes, and Museum cafeteria vouchers to offset cost-of-living expenses during their internship. Transportation and supplies for fieldwork are provided by the Museum.
