About Project SEED

Project SEED was established in 1968 to help economically disadvantaged high school students expand their education and career outlook. The program provides opportunities for students who historically lack exposure to scientific careers to spend a summer conducting hands-on research with a scientist in academic, industry, and government research laboratories. Students receive a fellowship award for their efforts and a chance to receive a SEED college scholarship. 

The Pittsburgh Section sponsors several students each summer at Duquesne University, under the direction of Dr. Jennifer Aitken.  Check out Dr. Aitken’s Project SEED blog  (
