History and Tradition

The HSHSP is the oldest, continuously running program of its kind in the U.S., having been established in 1958 as a hands-on science enrichment program for local high school students and, over time, developing into a national, highly selective residential program offering research apprenticeships in the life sciences. Since 1989, the HSHSP has offered research opportunities in all areas of science, engineering, and mathematics.

Our Alumni Continue to Excel

HSHSP alumni have received recognition for their research work in the form of awards in competitions and publications; all have gone on to college at such institutions as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Cal Tech, Brown, Yale, Columbia, Princeton, Cornell, Dartmouth, Michigan State University, University of Michigan, Duke, University of Pennsylvania, Carnegie Mellon, UNC, and many others. Most have majored in a science or science-related field, and most have gone on to graduate or professional schools.
