Nurturing the next generation of Scientists
The Junior Science and Humanities Symposium (JSHS) Program is sponsored by the Academy of Applied Sciences and the U.S. Army, Navy, and Air Force. Since its inception in 1958, the primary aims of JSHS are to promote research and experimentation at the secondary school level and to recognize students for original research achievements.
In Southeastern Michigan the program is housed in the College of Education at Wayne State University. Every year, students from high schools throughout southeastern Michigan attend a symposium at Wayne State University where they present their research and participate in a number of other activities.
Students participating in the JSHS have an opportunity to receive substantial scholarship awards at the regional and national levels.
