The Davis-Bahcall Scholars Program is for students entering their first or second year of college. Scholars spend four weeks of their summer exploring the world of modern scientific research at leading national and international laboratories and universities. They spend time at the Sanford Underground Research Facility, then visit Fermi and Argonne national laboratories in Chicago, other labs across the midwest, and Gran Sasso National Laboratory in Italy.*
The deadline to apply for the 2021 program is January 29.*
