Twenty-four Oklahoma high school students will begin a six-week summer research internship on Monday, June 6 as part of the 2016 Oklahoma Science Training and Research Students programs, known as OKstars and Native OKstars. The programs run through July 15.

Nineteen students will participate in OKstars and five in Native OKstars. The intensive programs provide students the opportunity to work side-by-side with professional researchers in biology, anatomy, forensics and other disciplines. Students will meet for a special orientation on campus on the first day of the internship. During orientation, participants will meet their OSU-CHS faculty mentors and fellow interns, take campus tours and complete required training.

OKstars is aimed at high school students interested in medical or science careers. Native OKstars is designed to encourage American Indian students to pursue a career in medicine or other science, technology, engineering and math fields.
