High School Research Mentor Program Forms

All the forms that are required for application to the High School Research Mentor Program are located below. All forms must be completed and received before the deadline for an application to be considered complete.

Deadline for applications April 02, 2012. The program will begin in late June.

We provide two formats of each form: PDF and Word. It is recommended that applicants who choose PDF to save the files using the "Save Link As..." option, save the files to the desktop, and edit the forms locally. Most web browsers will not save information entered into an "editable" PDF file. Editing and saving the files locally will avoid this limitation.

For questions regarding the application process, contact Dr. Susana Deustua, High School Research Mentor Program Coordinator, by email at hsmentor@stsci.edu, or phone at 410-338-4832.


The following files may be filled in electronically (see note regarding file types, above). Email the completed forms to: hsmentor@stsci.edu. Alternatively, you may fill-out and fax the files to: 410-338-4424.
