Project SEED, established in 1968, provides economically disadvantaged high school students the opportunity
to experience a career in chemistry-related sciences.
The program places students in academic, industrial, or
governmental laboratories for 8 to 10 weeks during the
summer to engage in hands-on science research projects with volunteer scientists. Project SEED students
receive a fellowship of $2,500.
Project SEED alumni are eligible to apply for a first-year non-renewable college scholarship. The scholarships are intended to assist Project SEED participants
in their transition from high school to college. The
scholarships are designed for students who will major
in a chemical science field, such as chemistry, chemical
engineering, biochemistry, or materials science.
