In2scienceUK is a charity with the mission to increase social mobility and diversity in STEM.
To achieve this mission, we have supported over 2,000 young people from low-income and disadvantaged backgrounds gain access to inspiring, invaluable, and free summer placements within their local communities, alongside careers guidance and STEM skills workshops.
Unfortunately, places on the programme are very competitive and we are not able to offer everyone a place.
In order to be considered for the programme you must meet all of the following eligibility criteria:
You must be currently attending a non-fee paying and non-selective state-maintained school.
You must be 16 years old or over and a current year 12 student or equivalent.
You must be studying at least one STEM related A-Level, BTEC or equivalent.
You must be available to take part in the majority programme during the summer.
We are always looking to expand where we offer our programme to new regions and give as many inspirational young people the opportunity to participate as possible. If you do not live within one hour of one of our current regions, but would like to apply anyway, we will let you know if a placement in your area becomes available.
The In2scienceUK programme currently runs in the following regions:
