Welcome to the Southwest Regional Junior Science and Humanities Symposia (JSHS) Program. The University of New Mexico is host to the 2017 Regional JSHS symposium held March 3-4, 2017 in Albuquerque, NM.
<< CLICK HERE TO APPLY>>
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?
High school students interested in STEM studies can participate as a presenter.
Who can present at the Regional JSHS?
Any high school student from the Southwest Region may submit a paper for consideration. The Southwest Region includes all of New Mexico, northwest Texas (El Paso area), and southern Colorado.
How do I present at the Regional JSHS?

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.
