Indiana high school students interested in developing their own brand of mad science may now be able to have their research funded by the state.

According to the Indiana Academy of Science, students attending 9-12 grade can now apply for grants up to $300 to assist them in paying for the design and research of their independent science projects.

Student proposals for the Junior Research Grants Program are now being accepted; however, all proposals must be prepared according to guidelines outlined by the academy, which can be found online by clicking here.

The deadline for proposal submissions is October 25, 2013.
