The Aspiring Scientists Summer Internship Program offers direct laboratory research experiences for high school and undergraduate students to engage in non-traditional investigative learning.  As part of the full-time summer training, students master essential laboratory skills, analyze and interpret results, read scientific literature, and present their projects to the community during a formal scientific poster session. In addition to gaining invaluable hands-on research experience, students also participate in workshops which boost creativity, enhance oral and written communication skills and create awareness of career opportunities in the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.

The Aspiring Scientists Summer Internship Program (ASSIP) welcomes your support through the George Mason University Foundation. To discuss giving opportunities, and other ways you can support ASSIP, please contact  Andrea Cobb via or 703-993-7058.
