For those of us living in the Midwest, the Columbus, Ohio edition of
STEM2U might be feasible.  While this appears not to be happening
until May of next year, applications for high school-age students need
to be in by June 15 of this year, and for them there is a requirement
first to attend a Leadership Academy in early September of this year.
