Welcome to the Kentucky Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. The University of Louisville is host to the 2017 Regional JSHS symposium held March 3-4, 2017 in Louisville, KY.
<< CLICK HERE TO REGISTER >>
JSHS is designed to challenge, engage, and publicly recognize students (Grades 9-12) conducting research in the sciences, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM). Individual students compete for scholarships and recognition by presenting the results of their original research efforts before a panel of judges and an audience of their peers. Opportunities for career exploration, research lab visits, peer discussions, and networking are planned. By participating in regional and national symposia, students may:
Who attends JSHS?
Kentucky high school students interested in STEM studies can participate either as a presenter or as a student delegate.
How do I present at the Regional JSHS?
What if my abstract is not accepted?
Students interested in
competing in the JSHS do not need to submit an abstract separately. Please
include your abstract within your final paper (following JSHS guidelines). Once
students submit papers and papers are evaluated, approximately 30 students will
be invited to the University of Louisville to present their research. These
students will be notified between February 13-15, 2017.
Students who are selected to make presentations at the Kentucky JSHS have an opportunity to win undergraduate, tuition-based scholarships and cash awards from $200 to $2,000.
The Academy of Applied Sciences will distribute $4,500 in academic scholarships to the top three regional finalists:
The top five finalists are invited to advance to the National JSHS. Two of the five finalists will orally present their research in competition for military-sponsored scholarships; three of the five finalists will present their research in poster sessions and receive recognition and cash awards. National JSHS scholarships are awarded as follows.

JSHS is a Tri-Service – U.S. Army, Navy and Air Force −program that encourages high school students to conduct original research in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). JSHS is a collaborative effort between the research arm of the Department of Defense and nationwide colleges and universities. JSHS aims to prepare and support students to contribute as future scientists and engineers, conducting STEM research on behalf of or directly for the Department of Defense (DoD), federal research laboratories to help advance the nation's scientific and technological progress. Through JSHS, over 8,000 youth annually compete in 48 regional symposia covering the U.S., Puerto Rico, and DoD Dependent Schools in Europe and the Pacific to receive recognition, incentives, and scholarships for their research achievements.
The Academy of Applied Science, a non-profit educational organization in Concord, New Hampshire, administers the National JSHS Program. The regional JSHS at the University of Louisville is co-operatively sponsored by the College of Education and Human Development.
