The Kinkaid Engineering, Math, and Science Institute was founded in 1975. Our purpose has been consistent since the beginning: to help under-represented youth identify their talents and appreciate their possibilities as educated men and women; to encourage under-represented youth to pursue college or university educations and, in particular, careers in science or engineering. Beyond these purposes, it is the hope that the Institute students will be worthy examples of academic ambitions and achievement in their Houston area schools.
The following forms must be on file with EMSI before the program starts in June. If you are accepted or are returning, a hard copy of these forms will be mailed to you in March/April.
