The American Summer Institute in Earth System Science (AISIESS) is a two-week residential program for high school students (grades 9-12). During the AISESS program, students spend one week camping on the La Jolla Band of Luise?o Indians reservation near San Diego, CA and one week on the University of California, Irvine campus. During both weeks, students learn about Earth System Science through interactive discussions and hands-on laboratory and field exercises. Each week also incorporates Native studies courses, visits from native STEM professionals, evening talking circles, field trips, college preparation activities, social events, and cultural activities. The program culminates with a ini-conference wherein students present research projects on a geoscience issue relevant to their own tribal communities.

The AISIESS program aims to address the critical need for Earth and Environmental Science professionals within tribal communities and is supported by an NSF Opportunities for Enhancing Diversity in the Geosciences (OEDG) grant to the PI, Dr. Kathleen Johnson. Admission to the program is based on a competitive application process. The NSF funds will cover the majority of expenses during the week, including: housing, daily meals, course materials and transportation during program activities. Participants are responsible for transportation to and from UCI, but scholarships are available to cover travel related expenses for qualified applicants.

The program also seeks college students or recent graduates to serve as paid Resident Assistants during the two weeks of the program. Those applying should be experienced with a residential setting and committed to American Indian youth and mentorship.
