SRMP 2012 Scholarship Winners

Three New York City high school seniors—a budding astrophysicist searching for other Earth-like planets, a young paleontologist studying the evolution of prehistoric reptiles, and a teen scientist researching the potential medical benefits of venomous marine snails—have all won $30,000 four-year college scholarships from the American Museum of Natural History’s first annual AMNH Science Scholars Award. The three students are all in the final year of the Museum’s Science Research Mentoring Program (SRMP), a prestigious two-year program that offers more than 50 New York City students (ages 17-18) a unique opportunity to work with Museum scientists on an array of independent research projects.
