Center for Precollegiate Education and Training Summer 2016 will mark the 58th consecutive year of the University of Florida Student Science Training Program (UF SSTP). More than 5100 academically talented students from around the world have completed this rigorous summer residential research program since its inception in 1959. The UF SSTP is a seven week residential research program for high school students who have completed their junior year and 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 30 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_Сйs of their own companies. Application Material for the 2016 UF SSTP will be available December 14, 2015 Tell me what SSTP is really like!
