PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota high school seniors and college freshmen can apply for a scholarship and the chance to study next summer at the Sanford Underground Science and Engineering Laboratory in Lead with researchers from universities across the United States and overseas.

Up to 12 South Dakota students will be chosen for the Davis-Bahcall Scholarships and the chance to study at the underground lab, if funding allows. Students can apply online at the South Dakota Department of Education's website. The deadline is Jan. 20.

The recipients of the scholarships will spend one month during the summer studying things like physics, engineering and geology.

The 3M Company and the South Dakota Space Grant Consortium funds the scholarships, which are named for renowned physicists Dr. Ray Davis and Dr. John Bahcall.
