The Young Scientist Program (YSP)

The Young Scientist Program (YSP) CLICK ON THE "Docs" BOX TO THE RIGHT TO DOWNLOAD OUR SPRING AND SUMMER BROCHURES AND APPLICATIONS. Located on the campus of the Illinois Institute of Technology, YSP presents a forum for talented students to strengthen their academic skills, meet new friends, and adopt a mentor while exploring their interests in science, particularly the health sciences.

Qualifying students join our family of aspiring and practicing health professionals. Our members are supported and encouraged throughout their grammar school, high school, college, graduate, and post-graduate endeavors.

Operating as usual

04/01/2016

On Monday, March 28, The Chicago Area Health and Medical Careers Programs, which The Young Scientist Program was a part of, was notified that it would no longer be allowed to operate on the campus of The Illinois Institute of Technology. Due to the states's budget impasse, our largest funding source, The Illinois Board of Higher Education, has been unable to grant its awards for 2016.


So, effective Friday, April 1, 2016. The Young Scientist Program, must suspend all activities.


I would like to thank each and every one of you for your support.

Pamela Dallas, director

Chicago's best high schools: Who gets in, who doesn't

Chicago's top high schools are getting taking in fewer graduates of public elementary schools. Read more here and arm yourself with knowledge!

Chicago has four elite public high schools. They’re the highest scoring schools in the state, better than top suburban schools. Competition to get is fierce, and ratcheted up again this year. WBEZ looks at who gets into Chicago’s best schools, and who does not.

Application for the Young Scientist Program

Good news.....no great news! CAHMCP and The Young Scientist Program have survived the Illinois budget cuts. And if that news wasn't celebratory enough, this year, we are able to provide full subsidies to the participants of YSP's Summer Program. This means that, this summer, YSP will waive the program fee for every student. For those:

WHO have completed the application process and have already submitted your fee. - Please email me at [email protected]. I will immediately begin the refund process.

WHO have begun the application process, yet still have grades or test scores to submit. - Please submit the remaining items quickly.

WHO have not begun the application process - If you wish for your child to have a summer of academic enrichment filled with exciting field trips and inspiring classroom projects, start the process as soon as you can.

This opportunity to offer full subsidies allows for administrative decisions, such as planning and staffing, to be made independent of enrollment. Therefore, the April 30, 2015 deadline for new students will be extended to Friday, May 15, 2015. There is , however, a limit to the number of students we can service. I encourage you to complete the application process as quickly and completely as you can. You can do this online by going to http://goo.gl/forms/jwPMmA4cEY.

BRIDGE BUILDING KITS AVAILABLE NOW!

I have spoken with Margarita Fraga, 312-5675189. Her office, IIT Office of Admissions, has bridge building kits that can be used for the annual bridge building project that many students participate in. They contain basswood and are $5 each. You can pick them up at her office - Perlstein Hall, 10 W. 33rd Street, Room 101. Her hours are from 8:30 until 4:30. I would suggest you call prior to coming so that you don't miss her if she goes to lunch or a meeting. I would like to thank Beverly Wong for sharing this source with YSP.

Happy building!
