I. ELIGIBILITY AND DIVERSITY
Young Nebraska Scientists (YNS) programs are open to all eligible applicants. We especially encourage the participation of individuals who are underrepresented in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
II. CONFIDENTIALITY OF INFORMATION
Financial information and other personal data are requested, either for reporting of aggregate YNS participant information the National Science Foundation (NSF) or for filling camp spaces that are open specifically for low-income or potential first-generation college students. No one may see the information you provide unless they work for Nebraska EPSCoR. The information reported to NSF is not associated specifically with the individual participant and is used in general statistical information about program participants, to help measure our success and to improve YNS programs.
III. SUMMER RESEARCH EXPERIENCE WORK PLANS
YNS Summer High School Researchers can work up to 35 hours each week for up to 8 weeks. We ask that applicants consider these experiences a very high priority and that outside employment not be pursued if possible. However, we do understand that high school students have many commitments, and we have asked host researchers to allow high school researchers some flexibility with their summer schedules to accommodate these commitments. You will be asked to indicate your tentative commitments for summer 2016 below.
