SCHOLARSHIP AWARDS at NATIONAL JSHS SYMPOSIUM
The first and second place finalists will be invited to compete at the National JSHS Symposium for additional scholarship awards:
All students in grades 9-12 enrolled in public, private or home schools within the area served by the JSHS regional symposium (Nassau and Suffolk Counties in New York State) are eligible to participate in the LI-JSHS symposium. Please note that while foreign nationals are eligible to present their research at JSHS regional and national symposia, students must be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States or U.S. territory to be eligible for the government-sponsored scholarship awards. In addition, please see national guidelines regarding submission of team project work, including selection/designation of a team group leader, scholarship funding requirements for teams (ie, notifying JSHS of which one student finalist would receive scholarship funding should a team presentation earn top regional or national award), etc. Note also that research involving non-human vertebrates or human subjects must be conducted under the supervision of an experienced teacher or researcher, must follow state and federal regulatory guidance applicable to the humane and ethical conduct of such research, and must be acknowledged as such in students’ written reports. For additional terms of eligibility and information on scholarship/award requirements, please visit the National JSHS web site.
A $500 award to one teacher will be given at the end of the symposium. This award honors the individual teacher and his/her school's contributions to advancing student participation in research. To nominate a teacher, students must download and submit the Teacher Award Form by e-mailing it as an attachment to JSHS@stonybrook.edu by January 20, 2013. In it, students are asked to write an essay describing how their teacher’s performance has gone above and beyond the call of duty, including anecdotal accounts of their teacher’s involvement in preparing them for the symposium. Only one form should be submitted from a school by students.
This award is a cornerstone for the success of the JSHS and any extra-curricular high school educational program. Teachers and school administrations are integral in publicizing and motivating students to participate and excel. Without strong teacher support, these programs would be far less effective in accomplishing their missions.
