Student Science Training Program
Summer 2014 will mark the 56th consecutive year of the University of Florida Student Science Training Program (UF SSTP). More than 5000 academically talented students from around the world have completed this rigorous summer residential research program since its inception in 1959.
The SSTP is a seven week residential research program for selected rising juniors and seniors who are considering medicine, math, computer, science, or engineering careers. The program emphasis is research participation with a UF faculty research scientist and his or her research team.
Students engage in the ongoing research of the faculty-mentor for 28 hours each week, attend a lecture series on current research topics, and participate in a UF honors seminar class. Students enrolled in a Florida high school have the option to earn dual enrollment credit.
UF SSTP alumni have gone on to attend the University of Florida and other prestigious universities such as Harvard, Oxford, Johns Hopkins and Stanford. They have become doctors, researchers, educators, engineers, and CEO’s of their own companies.
2014 Program Dates: June 8th – July 26th
