When high school science faculty can grow their skills and experience by participating in advanced research, their students and schools will benefit. The Murdock Trust created the Partners in Science Program to give these teachers this valuable learning opportunity.

- Partners in Science awards are made to colleges and universities and to other qualified research institutions to enable high school science teachers to participate in full‐time research for 8‐10 weeks during the summer.
- Applications are accepted from researchers in the natural sciences at institutions located in areas where the Partners in Science program is available.
- Applications must be submitted through a college or university or other qualified research institution which accepts responsibility for the administration of the award.
- Principal Investigators (Mentors)
- An investigator must have an active research program as evidenced by grants and/or publications and hold an appointment in a natural science department at a college, university, or other qualified institution in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington).
- High School Teachers (Partners)
- High school teachers should possess academic qualifications in appropriate disciplines, in most cases a baccalaureate degree or the equivalent in chemistry, physics, biology, or earth science.
- Applicants must be a full‐time teacher with a high school appointment and be teaching science.
- The teacher and high school would normally be within convenient commuting distance of the research host institution so that a research partnership may continue beyond the 8‐10 week summer research periods.
- There are no restrictions with regard to age, rank, or length of service of either teachers or mentors.
- Preference may be given to teachers:
- who have not had a previous opportunity to do research
- who have had three or more years of teaching experience
- who plan to continue teaching for
several years, so the benefits of the program can be transferred back to the classroom.
- Indirect costs or overhead and
academic year salaries are not allowed.
