Student Interest

This summer, ASPIRE applicants are also invited to apply for the high school cohort of the CIRCUIT program. CIRCUIT (Cohort-based Integrated Research Community for Undergraduate Innovation and Trailblazing), is excited to include trailblazing ASPIRE candidates who are interested in developing technical skills through hands-on, team-based research and supportive enrichment activities and training. Trailblazers are defined as high-achieving scholars who face barriers in achieving their dreams (e.g., those from underserved backgrounds, women and other minorities in STEM fields, and students without a previous chance to earn research experience). The CIRCUIT program runs concurrently with ASPIRE and has additional student requirements. As part of the CIRCUIT cohort, high school students work 40 hours per week at the APL campus during the summer session, attending all relevant CIRCUIT workshops, seminars, presentations, and research meetings. CIRCUIT-ASPIRE students may also have the opportunity to continue their internship into the academic year session, working 10 hours per week on-site and meeting with cohorts at least once a week through the 2020-2021 school year. Though your internship will begin in June, your participation in the CIRCUIT-ASPIRE program begins with afterschool classwork once per week, February 24th-May 22nd 2020 on-site at JHU APL as part of our STEM Academy. These classes are completely free of cost to the student and will help our trailblazers hit the ground running in the summer. These classes are not optional, and students who apply to the CIRCUIT-ASPIRE program must be able to attend. In exchange, you will receive an exciting, cohort-based experience and a chance to be on a team participating in cutting-edge research, professional development, student competitions, and fun activities! You can find out more about this opportunity, here.
