AMSE HONORS FELLOW
AMSE students in their junior year who are on track to meet all of the AMSE Honors requirements are eligible to apply for the prestigious AMSE Honors Fellow Program. Students who are accepted into this program will be placed in an internship program where they will receive specialized training and mentoring experiences with industry professionals during their senior year. Each student will be working on research and development projects specifically designed to capture their individual passions and develop their unique skill set. The Honors Fellow will be honored with a cord of distinction to wear on graduation day and receive a seal on their diploma. To apply to be an Honors Fellow, current VCHS junior students must submit an application, cover letter, resume, references, and complete an in-person interview.
The Honors Fellow application will be a separate application and will open April 1, 2019.
