The School of Sustainable Design Engineering at UPEI is launching its first ProGRES Summer Program to promote engineering research interest and involvement among high school girls. Through the ProGRES Program, high-school girls will have the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge research projects with world-class researchers in state-of-the-art facilities. The selected students will work directly with a woman faculty researcher and mentor on an independent research project, and they will have opportunities to meet and work with women engineers and women engineering students.

High school girls going into grades 11 and 12 are encouraged to apply for the ProGRES Summer Program by completing this application form and submitting it via the instructions below. Application forms will be reviewed and successful applicants will be selected to participate in engineering research projects at UPEI’s School of Sustainable Design Engineering for a five-week period (July 3 – August 4 or July 17 – August 18). Each participant will also be awarded a stipend of $2200. There will be 2-4 participants selected, depending upon interest.

Participants will be asked to share their research experiences with the public and their peers the following school year. The hope is that the shared research experiences will encourage more young women to choose Engineering at UPEI and see how women can thrive and be successful as engineering researchers or professional engineers.
