    NATIONAL YOUTH SCIENCE CAMP APPLICATIONS

    Applications for the 2014 National Youth Science Camp (NYSC) are now available at http://apply.nysc.org. The deadline for applying is March 1, 2014. NYSC has migrated to an on-line application system. As a result, paper copies of the application are no longer being accepted.

    Two high school seniors will receive a full scholarship to exchange ideas with scientists and other professionals from the academic and corporate worlds.  The nearly month-long experience includes lectures and hands-on research projects presented by scientists from across the nation, overnight camping trips into the Monogahela National Forest, and a visit to Washington D.C.  The selected delegates must demonstrate academic achievement in science, and show potential for thoughtful scientific leadership. 

    The NYSC experience is offered at no cost to its participants so that selected delegates may attend regardless of their financial status.  Contributions to the National Youth Science Foundation® allow delegates to participate in this experience.  Educational and recreational programming, as well as meals, lodging, and round-trip air passage on scheduled airlines are provided free of charge.

    Delegates arrive in Charleston, West Virginia, on Friday, June 27, and depart on Sunday, July 20, 2014.  The NYSC is held near Bartow in the eastern mountains of West Virginia, within the Monongahela National Forest. 

    Michael Heinz, New Jersey’s delegate selection coordinator, is available to answer questions about the NYSC or the application process. He can be reached by email at michael.heinz@doe.state.nj.us.
