Summer Youth Program Seeks Area Scholarship Applicants
Michigan Tech's Summer Youth Program has scholarship funding for up to 15 students from Baraga, Houghton and Keweenaw counties through an Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP) called UNITE.
AEOP calls UNITE a summer experience for "talented high school students from groups historically underrepresented and underserved in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)."
Students participating in the program will feel more confident in pursuing STEM-related college degrees and will gain insight into the college application process through workshops and mentoring.
To boost students' enthusiasm for science and engineering, UNITE will use the same kind of engaging, hands-on STEM activities Tech's Summer Youth Program is known for.
UNITE is open to current ninth through 11th grade students. The scholarship will cover all costs for selected students to participate in one week living on-campus and three weeks as a commuter student.
Applications are being accepted through Friday, June 3. The application can be downloaded here.
