The TARGET Program is a paid, six-week summer internship opportunity for Illinois high school sophomores and juniors who have strong interest and demonstrated aptitude for physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering. The program’s design combines both work and hands-on experiential learning. In addition, TARGET interns are expected to attend lectures and participate in program tours and group activities.
The program’s goals are to encourage high school students to undertake college study and pursue careers in STEM disciplines. The TARGET Program supports efforts to increase underrepresented populations in the sciences and engineering at the college level and consequently the workforce. Members of underrepresented populations, including but not limited to African Americans, Hispanics, Alaska Natives, American Indians, and women, are strongly encouraged to apply.
* Bonus fact: 2017 National Award Winner, Whitney Ford, completed the 2017 TARGET Program!
