Collage of images showing a fish, an electric pole, a scientist and a girl participating in EPSCoR

The girl pictured in the image on the far right is a participant in an Idaho EPSCoR program called HOIST, Helping Orient Indian Students and Teachers (HOIST)to Science and Mathematics, an educational program partially supported by Idaho NSF EPSCoR that encourages Native American youth to complete high school and to pursue science and technology related post-secondary studies. The 5-week summer program allows high school students to work directly with research lab staff and faculty and to take college preparatory math and English courses. With EPSCoR support, this program has grown since its founding.
