Apply for YNS Summer Programs January 1, 2021!

Young Nebraska Scientists Camps utilize an application platform outside of this site. When applying, you will be asked to create a log in. Please keep the following information in mind as you create your log in:


          1.  Use parental information for the initial log-in. The e-mail used to log-in, is the e-mail that will be used for correspondence from Outreach Coordinator.

          2.  Grade levels:  We place students based on their grade level at the time they are filling out the application. If it is the Spring semester and your student is an 8th grader, they apply as a 8th grader for the summer. 

          3.  If you are applying for a need base scholarship, select "skip this step" on your payment processing page and Outreach Coordinator will notify you on scholarship application status within a week of your application.

The High School Researcher Application will be facilitated through an outside application platform. The platform requires you to create a log-in that will allow you to adjust until the deadline. 


          1.  The log-in information should be made using the student's information and the student's e-mail address. NO parental information should be used to create the log-in.  A parent will need to be present for a portion of the application process for signatures on waiver forms.  

          2.  Applications are due on March 20th. Applications require a recommendation from a teacher. No extensions will be given, so start your application and request the recommendation early! 

    3.  The application does not have to be completed all at once, it can be saved and accessed with your log-in information.  

Applications open January 1, 2021
