Harvard-MIT Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP)
The Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP) at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian (CfA) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) provides an opportunity for high-school students to work on a year-long independent research project in astrophysics under the guidance of a Harvard or MIT scientist. Students learn what it is actually like to conduct real, cutting-edge research and work closely with scientists from diverse backgrounds.
This program is supported in part by the Heising-Simons Foundation through the 51 Pegasi b fellowship, an NSF Astronomy and Astrophysics Postdoctoral Fellowship under award AST-1602595, the City of Cambridge, the Wolbach Library at the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian, members of Rotary Cambridge, and generous individuals.
