MICHIGAN UNIV ANN ARBOR DIV OF RESEARCH DEVELOPMENT AND ADMINISTRATION
Pagination or Media Count:
The University of Michigan proposal to participate in the Office of Naval Research High School Apprenticeship Program was organized to reduce the administrative burden on project directors. As a result, the level of participation was excellent and all participants were pleased with the program. All thirty-five project directors with Navy grants and contracts were given an explanation of the program and were asked to serve as mentors. Fourteen project directors agreed to it with the understanding that they would not be required to administer by the program. Reasons given for non-participation included safety in the laboratory, subject matter of the research was too complex, and lack of available time to serve as a mentor. Upon approval of the Office of Naval Research High Traineeship program at the University of Michigan 1990, recruiting efforts began to get the program underway. An introductory letter Enclosure A was sent to high schools in or relatively near the Ann Arbor area requesting the nomination of students. Students interested in gaining valuable experience in science, math and engineering-related fields while earning 1,000 over the summer were encouraged to apply.
