► THE FORENSIC SCIENCE MENTORING INSTITUTE (FMI) is a non-profit, 7-week, academic program that specializes in teaching the forensic sciences to local high school students. They are offering their annual forensic sciences summer program TUITION FREE for the first time ever. The selection process will be based on merit and student applications as they are seeking dedicated students who have a passion for science, and who would benefit from a hands-on learning environment in a state-of-the-art laboratory. All students in the program will be paired with a mentor and will learn from actual forensic scientists using the same cutting-edge instrumentation deployed in real crime labs.

This is a unique opportunity for students who would like to get a head start by learning the investigational and analytical techniques taught in college-level courses, and the FMI program serves as an invaluable and ongoing resource for college prep. Students are also taught public speaking as they present their research findings, take trips to local universities, enjoy a picnic day, perform in the program talent show, visit the nation’s top private forensic lab (NMS Labs) and act as expert witnesses by presenting their case in a mock court setting in front of a judge with their friends and family watching. They are actively seeking student applicants within the Philadelphia School District and can offer scholarships to qualified students who need assistance with transportation to their teaching facility in Willow Grove, PA.

ELIGIBILITY: Currently enrolled in high school – Sixteen years of age or older by June 25, 2018 – Completion or evidence of enrollment in biology, chemistry, and algebra with passing grades.

► Dartmouth College’s Dartmouth Bound Program runs July 16-18, 2018, and is an on-campus opportunity providing intellectually curious and dynamic rising high school seniors an intensive practice of college life and hands-on college application guidance. The Dartmouth Bound Program serves high-achieving students from low-income and/or under-represented backgrounds, students who have the potential and academic talent to thrive at a highly-selective college like Dartmouth but who might not understand the opportunities that exist for them. Dartmouth covers all costs associated with the program, including round-trip transportation to and from Hanover. Participating students will receive an in-depth introduction to the enduring value of a liberal arts education through Dartmouth’s curriculum and faculty, experience the state-of-the-art facilities available to them, and make meaningful connections with their peers. Dartmouth’s admissions and financial aid officers will offer hands-on workshops to prepare students for the upcoming college admissions process. Students will leave campus with the confidence that an Ivy League education is accessible and affordable and will prepare them for a dynamic life and career in the 21st century. Any interested students should see Ms. Chasan in the counseling office by Friday, March 16th 2018.  –E. Chasan
