ABOUT STEM Fellowship

 

STEM Fellowship is a national, student-run, non-profit organization that aims to enrich the paths of students in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields through programs, competitions, and workshops. We have our own peer-reviewed open source journal through Canadian Science Publishing and are the organizers of The Big Data Challenge, a longitudinal, mentorship-based research competition in which students analyze big data to discover trends related to socioeconomic or environmental issues in their communities. Our mission is to use mentorship and experiential learning to equip the next generation of change-makers in STEM with indispensable skills in research, data science, inquiry, and scholarly writing.

 

UALBERTA STEM FELLOWSHIP INTERNSHIP PROGRAM

 

Our program offers an opportunity for high school students to experience scientific research at an academic lab for five days over March break (March 29th- April 1st, 2021). Student interns will be mentored by postdoctoral fellows or graduate students and engage in cutting edge research in a specific field. This program allows interns to explore careers in research and develop insight into scientific inquiry through the research process.
