||Baylor University High School Summer Science Research Program (Waco, TX)
||The purpose of the High School Summer Science Research Program (HSSSRP), an annual program established in 1991, is to give superior high school students hands-on research experience by working on research projects with Baylor University science professors in many disciplines. The fellowship program occurs during the University's first session of summer school and is open to students between their junior and senior year of high school.

I was in the research class in the summer of 1994 - it was my first introduction to university-level research. My fellow summer researchers were absolutely top notch, and I had a great professor guiding my research of distributed transactional database efficiency. Following the program, I graduated from Baylor with honors at which point I went to Georgia Tech for graduate school. Last year, I received my Ph.D. in computer science and I now work for a top-tier, international management consulting firm.

"Students are selected each year from high schools throughout the United States to be involved in this research summer program, which allows them to earn one semester hour of college credit." This would be a great summer experience for Young Scholars who have an interest in science and research.
