Grant Summary

$240,000 over 36 months to provide high school students with a program that combines environmental studies, field study, and community service, and to support Henry Street Settlement's college preparatory program, Expanded Horizons. The program is designed to encourage high school juniors to explore science as a career track in emerging areas such as "green" technologies, ecology, and environmental studies, and to prepare them for the rigors of college and scientific research. Students will design a research project based on their research and study, and the program will culminate in a three-week residential college experience at Cornell University during the summer
